It is amazing how fast your own kids grow up. I remember it taking forever for me to get old enough to leave the house but my girls are racing for it.
The previous few weeks saw my 2 wonderful girls heading off to their first days of school. I can’t get over how fast they are growing up……..so cliche……..but DANG IT!!!!
Jules is now in 3rd grade and needs glasses during class. 3rd grade is really when my memory kicked in. I have memories from before that time period, but they are disjointed. 3rd grade seems to be the turning point for me in remembering time frames, activities and actions clearly. That is driving home the reality that my kids are growing up and no amount of want will slow time down.
and then there is Jane….my youngest….sigh. She started pre-school. This is Jane on her first day of school.
Jane is our youngest and last. It kills me that she is getting to the point where she is no longer the ‘mini’ or the ‘baby genius’ ……that’s family code for Jane. She was always small for her age so people were surprised whenever she spoke….baby genius style. She has hit a growth spurt recently so that doesn’t happen anymore. *sniff*
My beautiful, smart, wonderful girls.
