OK~ I spent the day with my soon to be 20 year old son. Where, oh where have those years went~ I must have blinked too much! We chatted about all of the things we did when he was little. So thankful that we took the time to do all the many things we have done with him. Oh, and I'm sure there are many more fun times to come! But, it's so fun to see him smile so big when we talked about all of the road trips, family chaos, and the brotherly love! It's no secret that our two boys really don't get along that well. I do think as they are getting older, they are beginning to reconnect.
Fun times...play time....Gotta love it~ then he grows up~ I know that many years have passed when he says to me, "Mom, you are every used car salesman's nightmare!"
I recall the day we came home from the hospital with a newborn baby...My room mate said to me, "Enjoy him while he's little!" I thought to myself, "What does she know?" Yeah...turns out she knew what she was talking about. After all, she had just given birth to her third child, and I had my first born child~ a true blessing from God, in my arms~and he's now 19 3/4+! Yikes...so that in turn means that this Mom has lots of gray hair, funny looking feet, and the feeling of "old!" Just my observations, as we age our hair does turn gray (Thank God for hair color), feet look different(especially the toenails) and that feeling of tired before the 10 o'clock news hits the air! My advice to all Mom's out there~ Don't Blink! After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
