Work has had a stronghold over me lately. I blinked & two weeks just zoomed right past. Don't you hate that?
Today is Friday, and Friday is full of awesomeness in my house! We stay up late and act goofy and then tomorrow we get to sleep in - stay in our jammies all day if we want, until it's time to go in the pool. THIS is what I love about summer, about weekends & about the time with my kids. Carefree - have fun, do what we want. No rules! Well, OK - some rules.
|No matter how old he is, this is how I see him.|
I can't even believe that he's grown, out of the house and defending our country. We had our fun while he was really little & things got hard for us. Then time took hold & ran so fast I don't know what happened. School, Sports - I blinked.
When I was younger, my body wouldn't cooperate in the "child manufacturing department".
So my "bio babies" are ten years apart and then the little chickadee is 5 years younger than my baby girl.
"Baby Girl" is almost 10.
She's already rolling her eyes at me. I'm only cool some of the time & the rest of the time I'm just REALLY MEAN and "don't let her do anything." Ho hum...
Well, I've still got chickadee - for as long as she stays with us.
She still seems to like me, but then I'm also not "bio mom" so I totally rock. Well, most of the time.
Some days, I wish I could stop time, or even have a remote control to pause or rewind. Sometimes fast forward - you know the times. Just more time to enjoy the things that go by so fast. The things that rob you of the good stuff.
I'm definitely rolling into the time of my life where I've gotten my "freedom to be me" back. I still have to get babysitters if I want to go out, but no more diapers, no more bottles or feeding little people who can't feed themselves. I'm finally getting to enjoy my friends & be a big person again.
Before I know it, the short ones will be big ones & following their big brother onto the next phase of their life.
It makes me sad to think about it sometimes, but for now - I'm just going to soak up every second of the little people time.
As always, thank you for your continued support & for reading my blog!
Have an amazing weekend!!
