Seriously. Wow. Winter flew by….it was December and I blinked…now March.
Let me preface this post with this…I am not a gooey mess of a mom who is weeping daily over every milestone, or a sentimentalist yearning for the infant years (sleep…I love you…Welcome back to our lives!). I am neither a saver of everything (that’s my mom), or even an especially introspective person. (I like to think of myself as the female equivalent of the dumb jock….lol.) But, the fact that my baby (my baby!!!) is going to kindergarten in the fall seems to be messing with my “keep moving ahead” brain.
So time passes and they grow up. Duh.
However, the passage of time is so evident since I had my girls. Before, a year would go by without major changes. I looked the same, had the same job, lived in the same place, etc. Now, I see changes weekly, even daily in my girls. It is etched in mastered skills in gymnastics, their crushes, their no longer needed (as much) pacifiers, their too small clothing, their faces, their size, their perspectives, their likes and dislikes, their hopes and dreams of what they want to be when they grow up. I consider myself the luckiest to get to record and view it firsthand. What a privilege and honor to be mom.
What Growing up Looks like.
This last one is called “When I grow up”. Both girls maintain they are going to open up a restaurant serving only kid approved food called the “Sister Cafe” (they pronounce it Caf). My mom did the drawings based on what the girls requested be in the shot.
