Pretty much the most common thing that strangers and family/friends say to me at least on a weekly basis is to enjoy every minute. They grow up so fast.

And I have to say… they are right…
Somehow right before my very eyes my little baby girl has/is growing up. Now I know we still have a long way to go and we are still right in the middle of “Parenthood” but where has the time gone? It seems like just yesterday I took her home for the first time and my life began. A few weeks ago I posted about what I Never did before I was a Mom (read it here) and I was wondering about what I did before kids? I can barely remember. I can barely remember because I feel like my life began when I became a Mom.

So now we are closing out another summer and I’m always emotional at this time of year. I only get to be a stay at home mom for about 9 weeks when school is out. Life of a Teacher/Mommy. I’ve tried to make it a fun summer. I’ve tried to enjoy it, even the ugly times.
But really, all I did was blink a few times and it seems like my life just passed right on by…
My little baby girl, she’s just a baby, right? She can’t be going into 1st grade. She can’t be turning 7 in less than 2 months. How is that possible? She’s just a baby.
And this guy? There is no way he is 16 mths old. No way. I just came home from the hospital with him, right? I was just staying up all night getting NO sleep tending to a screaming baby, right? That was just yesterday, not 16 mths ago! He can’t be upright walking and talking? But he is. Life is going by at full speed.
