Love you forever

My boys are growing so fast. Makes me happy, sad, scare and excited all at the same time. Weird, right? I think most parents can relate to all of those feelings. I love them so much I hope they know that for both their daddy and I they are our first priority. We are always trying to do our best for them. I know we will more than likely make mistakes but I hope they don't take it to personal because being a parent is hard.  Just when you think you have things figure out they throw you a curve ball that is completely unexpected.

My "turkey baby" aka the cool big boy of the family has just learned how to ride his bike without training wheels. He is so proud of himself and we are too. He can't believe mommy didn't learn until her early twenties. I know..... shocking, right? 

I can't believe in a few months he will be off to kinder garden!

My baby or our little man will be turning three next month. I love that he loves to sit and "read" books and is always trying to observe his big brother and soaking everything he can. He wore big boy underwear for several hours today and he loved it so it looks like he is ready to grow up just a little more.

Their "babyness" is slipping through my fingers like water in my hands. As time goes on I cherish more and more the cuddles and kisses that I get.

"I'll love you forever,
I'll like you for always,
As long as I'm living
my baby you will be"


  1. The shot of those little hands bring warmth to my heart. I tried reading that story to my 1st graders (I'm now retired), but I'd start choking up when I came to the part where Mommy held her adult son. I had to stop reading it aloud and just leave it for the kids to enjoy.
    So, no, none of your feelings are weird to me!

  2. The very first time I read this book to my oldest son when he was just a few days old I couldn't finish reading either. This is one of his favorite books so we read it often and sometimes I still get a little chocked up.


I LOVE to read each and everyone of your comments.
