I cannot believe

That in two short months I will have a 12 year old. I was just holding him all slimey and new. He was soo little. His bottom used to fit perfectly in the cup of my hand.
My first glimpse of perfection. *sigh*
I just keep thinking that these last 12 years have FLOWN and I may only have 8 more before he leaves the nest. How this breaks my heart into a million pieces. I have NEVER been a mom to wish my kids away. I remember back in 2000, meeting a new friend online. When she found out that Matthew was 4 and Dillon was 2, and we were trying to get pg with Collin, she said,"I bet you can't wait till they are in school" so that I could have some peace. But I've NEVER wished my kids were in school. I cannot imagine not being with them all day long, and I Realize how blessed I am to be able to stay home with them. Many many people don't get that.
Now, people tell me that when they are teenagers I'll be ready for them to leave...I just don't see it.

No - I don't wish mine away either. My twins are 16 - two more years and they are off to college. I am always telling them that I don't want them to leave and I don't. It is hard letting them go - seeing them getting older.

Have a good day - Kellan
