Where have all my babies gone?
I find myself feeling the weight of time passing. Another school year is pretty much done, and I am wondering how that is at all possible. Abbey done Grade 10, Raine finished with Grade 7 and Hazel going on to SK. How? Why? Where are my little girls?
I know that is is what happens but when I first became a parent I felt that the future stretched on forever and ever, and I was excited for it to start. Now, my excitement is bittersweet as usually, any time that passes, any milestones reached are bringing my girls closer to their own personal destinations. I never thought about things in these terms before.....maybe because when little ones are little all energies go to showing them the ropes. I actually have time to think about what is going on now (thanks to lack of sleep deprivation)...I can see full well how this is going to end up.
Just the ramblings of a sentimental mama today.
