where does the time go?

I was just looking through some pictures on my computer.  I was looking for something that I could blog about.  I am a huge fan of posts with pictures.  It is almost impossible for me to have a blog post without at least one picture.  I'm just weird like that.

Anyway, somehow this picture was towards the more recent photos and I'm not sure why.  But, I can tell you that it is hard to believe that the little, CUTE girl in this picture is now 5 years old!  Bella was such a sweet baby!

Some days I am in such a race for these girls of mine to be independent.  I'm not talking living on their own.  I just mean I don't have to pour them a cup of milk.  Or, Bella could make dinner.  If you are a mom or dad, you understand that all days are not walks in the park with kids!  But, at the same time, there are lots of moments that make it so worth it.  And, instead of wanting to race forward, I want to freeze time.

But, pictures like the one above confirm that the "independent" days will be right around the corner. 

Where does the time go?

Sometimes I think that time flies by at warp speed. When I look back at Hope's baby pictures, I can't believe that she's now 14 and about to graduate from the 9th grade! All I can think is, "When did she grow up?" and "How can I be THAT old?"

We all have our rough days. Just know that those independent days are just around the corner.

Hang in there! :)

It is like an internal conflict. At moments you can't wait for them to be grown and than the next second you are yearning for when they were babies. I just try now to cherish every moment but some days he makes that so hard! Lol

Leslie, I know! They will be here before I know it and then I will be crying for them to be young again.

Jennifer, you are speaking the truth! One minute I wish I could fast forward time to not deal with this age. But, I look at pictures like this and just wish they were little again.
