Life is Different Now
~ We are a Family with Big Kids ~
I knew the time would come sooner or later (hoping it would be later), but my babies are now grown. This fall my baby will be in kindergarten. At least it’s only a half day program where I live, so I will still have one last year to spend time with him before he’s full-day. I need to make sure I use this time wisely. I know blogging takes up time during my day, so I will do my best to squeeze three hours of work in while he’s at school and then spend time with him when he gets home.
So I have a 5-year old and an 8-year old! One kid off to 3rd grade and the other one to kindergarten! How did this happen? I remember delivering my daughter in California like it was yesterday, and for sure delivering my son in Illinois. How has time passed so quickly? It makes me sad we won’t have any baby stuff around the house. No longer the smell of a newborn or the watching for first steps. I am now a family with big kids.
I’m sure there will be positives to having big kids too. We can travel much easier and expenses on baby items (diapers, different foods, etc) will be cut down. I am proud to see how my two kids have grown into kind and caring little people, who are very inquisitive and love reading, playing, and the outdoors. I just wish I could slow down time a little. I’m sure the only way to do that is to really live in the moment and not think about the craziness of what’s due tomorrow/next week. I just need to live and enjoy them. Time flies just too fast!
I know my kids will love being at the same school this year! My two big kids off to school next week to embark on a year that will go by way too fast. I love them so much!
And now they’re ALL grown!!
