Growing so fast

I have three healthy kids, 5, 3 1/2, and 2. When my eldest was born, other parents would tell me to cherish every moment, as they grow up so fast. At the time, I kind of understand. But now, five years later, I realize it even more. I really understand what they mean. I thought that we had plenty of time before we had sign our kids up for school, but now my eldest will be starting in just a few short months. Next January we'll be signing up my second up for school as she will be starting that fall. One year after her sister.

It's really scary to think about. I'm really proud of them. They're really great kids. I love seeing them grow up. But it can still be a little sad to see them grow. It's nostalgic. It's with mix feelings that I see them grow into smart and special kids.

No matter how big they get, they will always be my kids and I will always loved them.

Yes, they grow so fast, don't they? Now, I am telling my grandchildren that their mother used to love a particular book or song.

They really do grow up fast. I'll probably be telling my grandkids the same things before I know it. It goes by too fast.

You know? My kid is almost 20, but he's still my little kid! This will never change! :)

I tell my girls all the time, "stop growing' They know I'm joking but with my oldest 21, 18, and youngest 12. It's going by way to fast. The good news is we still do everything together shopping, movies, cooking, travel. They are truly the joy of my life! I don't envy you the first day of school was hard for me each time. There suddenly was a void in my day. the good news is you get to hear all about it.

I don't think it ever will. They'll always be my kids. It's something that I'm starting to find out.

I tell my kids the same thing. I ask them to stop growing, jokingly. I'm glad you still get to do things with your girls. The first day is definitely going to be hard for me. I'm sure it'll be an emotional day for me for each one of them.
