They Grow So Fast




My daughter turned 12 in June and she had a slumber party, this is just one end of the living room that her and her friends decorated. They had a great time! Before the slumber party I took her, my son and 6 of her closer friends to play lazer tag. THAT is a lot of fun!

I enjoy it when my kids bring their friends over to the house. Right now I have two 9 year old boys playing some shooting game, in true 9 year old boy fashion. Listening to them is funny! My daughter has a friend over as well, they are much quieter but their conversations are getting more interesting, when I can hear them. She has not quite gotten boy crazy yet but does have a crush on the one that plays George in the Harry Potter movies.

One of my best friends just had a baby, spending time taking care of this tiny little boy had made me realize just how fast time has gone by! It does not seem that long ago that my girl was only a few weeks old and only 6lbs. Then came my smiling boy that giggles, well he still giggles but he is much bigger now. They grow up so fast I feel that if I blink too many times I will miss something big.

When they're being a PITA, they're not growing up fast enough! LOL

I hear ya, Saphira! I look at my ds and realize that he will begin third grade this year and feel almost faint at the mere notion of it! How is it even possible??? I enjoy him more as he gets older... pretty sure at some point that will no longer be true - but I can hope.

Gosh - I haven't even seen a baby recently - one that I can hold that is... sometimes babies sort of freak me out. I have never been one to fawn over infants...

they grow WAY too fast. I miss my baby and he's enjoying being gone WAY too much.... i want him to miss me as much as i miss him but I'm sure he doesn't. *sigh*

They do grow up too fast indeed! It's funny, because I remember the baby and toddler years as feeling long and endless, and yet, here I are, almost overnight, with two great big boys pushing the teen years. How does that happen?
