From Teeth to Marriage

Call me a sentimental fool or just a fool-- either way, my baby just had another mile stone today.  Now we've done the lost tooth thing many times but this will be the last time I go through it for the first time with one of my kids.  (I hope you got that)

MY BABY IS GROWING UP!

Boo Whaaaa!

I've been smacked in the face with this everyday for the last month or so.  My oldest has informed my that I can no longer pick out her clothes.  I used to just lay them out in a pile for her to put on in the morning.  Apparently that crosses the line now. 

My baby Zoey has decided on her life's profession and it now trying to pursue it daily.  She told me that her class was doing reports about what they wanted to be when they grew up.  The teacher told them it had to be a real career-- not like a Mom or something.  So she said she wanted to be me when she grew up but if she couldn't be that then she was going to be a professional chef.  Now my kitchen is the hot zone for "helping" mom.

The boys have grown like 10 feet in the last few months and nothing fits.  I'm starting to shop in the regular women's sections for the girls. The women's!!  THE WOMEN'S!  That means we can start shopping together in the same section-- the same section.  Z is one size away from sharing my shoes.  Crazy I tell you!  Sheer madness!

Where did the time go?

First it's a tooth and then it's a date.  Pretty soon I'll be trying on dresses for their weddings. 

sniff sniff.

Not fair.

And yes, I did just skip from teeth to weddings just like that because that's what it feels like.  Don't judge!

Can't they just stay tiny and cute for just a little while longer?

I'm just not ready.

Awwww! That IS kind of sad. You can send Zoey this way. I need a live-in chef. Please?

I've said it before and I'll say it again:

Life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer you get to the end, the faster it unrolls.

Sooo bugged that the seasons just slip by me faster than anything. And don't even get me started on my kids.

Oh, but when they grow up and get married and have grandkids. That is when life is worth living. My baby has his own home, a wife and two year old to go with it.

I can't handle this post to be honest! I know that technically they are your kids but I feel like I should have the right to tell them to stop growing up so fast too!!! It's just wrong! So please pass on their Aunt Cassie's plea!

Wow, I am still reeling at that teacher's comment about a real career - not a Mum or something!!! Holy cow....
