Tick,Tock




My kids are 2, 4 and 6 and in two weeks I'll be 38. How did this happen? I know, I know 38, is NOT old but do you ever just want to hit pause? Wait a minute, hold things right here, suspended animation, bookmark it, pull back on the clock hands? I do.

This year. I'll be 40. FORTY. and my kids will be 3 and 5. Despite not really knowing how I got so old, I'm kind of looking forward to the growth that we all will have in the next years.

Yeah, I agree....I think the earlier post about getting better as you get older definitely applies. I guess I just want my kids to freeze right now (even though there is mayhem and tantrums abound), because I can still snuggle with them and pinch their little cheeks. Jamie (6) is already pulling away, in a good way. When they say "it's goes by so fast" they aren't kidding!

Hear it loud and clear. It goes by fast, doesn't it?

I think we lead parallel lives sometimes, what with my 2.5, 5, and 7 year old and 38 looming this year, too! We'll manage. I hope. : )

Well, if you are feeling old then I am too. I'll be the same age too very soon! I am having some crazy miss them already issues....and they are only 7 and 9! I think the whole nurturing urge comes in waves. It wasn't there so much during the 2's, but then wham! They are 9 and you are like shoot, when did they get so big? And you want to shrink them down and start over again.
