Whenever I look at my friend’s baby, it reminds me of the time when my children were little. The other night, my husband and I decided to watch videos of our kids when they were three and nine. Boy, were they cute!
They’re still cute, but when they were little ones they were really cute! It was fun to listen to what they said and what made them get excited.
My older daughter recently started going out with a young man from her school. When she first told me about him, I was excited for her. But then she told me he lived on the other side of the country, and then I was upset. What if she leaves me?
Tonight, my son told me that he is going to ask a girl out on a date. This is his first real date with a girl and although I am proud of him, I’m also sad to see him grow up.
It’s amazing how when you’re a parent, you get such mixed emotions. When the kids are little, you want them to grow up and when they are grown up, you want them to be little again. I love that they are both adults now and that we can talk about anything. When they were young, it felt like life would be like this forever, and then one day it seemed, that the kids grew up…
