My two oldest children are away, visiting their Grandma and some friends in South Dakota. This is the first time they’ve been away from us longer than an overnight at a sleep-over. I know it’s cliche, but I’m having a moment. I’m thinking about my babies all grown up and how it was only yesterday I was changing diapers all day long and breastfeeding the rest of the time.
At the risk of embarrassing my oldest, who follows my blog, here they are then and now:
* to be honest, while our house is quiet with no teenagers in it (crazy!) and I KNOW it’s good for them to experience being on their own a bit, this mamma is having a hard time not having her babbies around, not knowing what they’re doing, not being involved. Ug.
