Off to College...


Meazi asked me if she could take her nap today in her toddler bed.

Alone.

By herself.

How did this happen?

She's practically eighteen.

Please press pause. It is going by too fast.

  2. oh horrible horrible horrible time...so slow before they arrive and so horrifically fast once they are here (except when it isn't.)

    last week Quinn asked if he could read his book alone in bed without me reading to him. What?! That's MY best time of the day. How could he do that to me? Just grow up like that without me giving him a signed permission slip saying, yes, it's ok just go ahead and break my heart.

    yup. I feel yah. So fast. And I know for you it must feel even faster. I'm happy you have two!!!

  3. I had the same feeling today. Sam went to the babysitter's house for the first time and had a blast. Without me. Without Gregg. Just the babysitter and other little girl and ... again I say, without me. How did this happen??
    I swear our kids were little last time I checked.

  14. My oldest is almost 12 and it honestly seems like just yesterday that we were bringing him home from the hospital. It goes so fast. so fast.

    It seems like just yesterday we were longing for children and our nest will be empty again before we know it. Sniff..sniff...sniff....
