What a Difference a Week Makes

Since my return to Maryland I have noticed some changes in my children. My two year old Baby Girl now says "never-mind" and "actually" with regularity. My Big Girl is well on her way to losing her second tooth. My Little Boy has a new classroom crush. My Middle Boy has changed his mind about being a leprechaun for Halloween (thank goodness; I think the nerd factor there was pretty high), and my Big Boy has grown to a height above my five feet four inches. Seesh! It's true what they say about blinking and missing the growing up process. What's a mom to do? Have more children? Not likely. Start binding their feet to stop the growing? Sounds like some form of abuse. Or just try and enjoy them as much as possible. Probably a good plan.

I have just been noticing the same thing with how kids grow up so fast. It scares me. Thank goodness only my kids are aging and I am not getting older and starting to make old man noises when I bend over to pick things off the floor.

I am impressed that you pick things up off the floor! My husband thought he was so great for vacuuming while I was away but forgot to put the vacuum away. Guess I should just focus on the positive right?

Glad you had a fun time in Utah. You're so right about enjoying kids right here, right now. WE adults don't get old near as fast, right?!
