sometimes all i can do is laugh


He walked in from school today and I swear, it looks like he has grown another two inches. He then proceeded to munch on his chocolate rabbit... before he even set down his backpack. And just now? He squealed like a girl as he sat down to practice the piano and lifted the cover... to reveal undiscovered Easter candy from Sunday. And sometimes... all I can do is laugh. And savor the silliness. Because I can see the inches gaining on him day by day (9 inches in eight months?!)... and while he will always be my baby... he really isn't. Not anymore. Not by a long shot. It is seems most evident when I look down at his feet and someone has replaced his cute little boy feet with big ole almost-man feet...

As I watched my four run around a playground last night, I had the same thoughts and reactions. As much as I don't want to miss a second of it, I know it is inevitable and all I can do is smile and enjoy it.

I make comments around my children that they will always be my babies. And they just don't get it and have even questioned me as to why I say that. But one day...when they have their own children....they will understand fully....with their whole heart.

And I would have squealed, too, finding a yummy piece of chocolate ;)

That sticker picture made me smile as well as my eyes water. I remember THAT little boy!!!!
He is growing up (and FAST) but you know he will always be your special boy!!!

So, did he eat the ears first?

sometimes I want to put a brick on their heads and stop them from growing...just until I catch up to it all emotionally... :0)
