Our days.. ::Random::

Lately our days have been lazy ones. We may or may not make it out of our pajamas. We might run to town or we might not. We might play the Wii or we might color. We might do some school work or we might watch a movie. I find time here and there to clean and the kids make sure their toys are picked up when asked, but besides that.. lazy. I think after all the running around, traveling, etc that we did over Christmas and New Year's that I was just burned out. And lately, especially at night when my mind tends to wonder, I've been realizing more and more that time is passing so quickly. I look at Jon Kent and no longer see one single thing that ties him back to his baby days.. toddlers day. Nothing. He is all boy now. He will be starting school in 7 months. School. When did that happen? And this is just the beginning, I know. Soon Jon Kent will be asking for the keys to the car and an extension to his curfew. Zoey will be into make-up and clothes and boys. Nathan will be doing his own thing and I fairly sure being stubborn while he does it.

I can't really tell you what brought all this on. But in a way, I am glad it is happening. I rather realize all this now rather than later, when the kids won't have a thing to do with me. I love them so much and I waited and went through a lot to get the 3 I have. I don't want to take for granted the time I have with them now. It's so short and I want to soak up every last minute of it.

Life does move way too quickly. My kiddos are 8 and 5, I miss the lazy days of not doing anything, having nothing scheduled and being able to just relax and hang out together. Enjoy every minute you get to just be.

I understand. Everyday that passes is one day closer to the kids leaving me and staring their own lives.

It's difficult...but at the same time, it's what we do as parents. Set our baby birds free.

Uggghh. I'd rather keep them in the nest, thank you very much.
