I just got off of the phone with the school. It’s already time for me to be schedule an appointment to register Lila and Mia for Kindergarten for next year. How is that possible?
How did this happen so quickly? Didn’t we just bring them home from the hospital?
Didn’t Lila just learn to say Daddy?
Wasn’t it just yesterday that they figured out how to crawl through the doggy door?
It seems like it was just last week that they were locked down in baby jail.
Didn’t we just celebrate their first birthday?
No, kindergarten isn’t possible yet. They just started preschool!
It’s really a weird feeling. I mean let’s be honest, raising three little ones so close in age ain’t no joke. It’s HARD. And since I’m being honest, I’ll also tell you that I’ve been dreaming about all the kids being in school all day since they were just babies!
But now that time is almost here, and believe it or not, I’m kinda wanting to reverse time. To have them little for just a bit longer. Ethan is only in first grade, and I see his independence coming through. He loves his mommy, but he also is becoming his own little person.
And I think it scares me that as they grow they’ll need me less and less. That I won’t be the center of their world. That someday, OH MY GOD, someday they’ll be out of the house starting their own lives.
Now I’m crying. I don’t think I’m ready for this whole no-more-babies-now-I-have-big-kids stage.
Time flies, it really does. It is going too, too fast. I want it to slow down, throw time in reverse, and enjoy my babies being babies for just a little bit longer…
