Those little tiny screaming babies that I brought home from the hospital 5 years ago have now grown into these two precious, funny, beautiful little girls. They start Kindergarten in the fall and I am firmly in the, “Where did my babies go?” stage of parenthood. I will admit to occasionally getting a little weepy over saying goodbye to my days as a parent of preschoolers. I’m now holding with an iron grip every funny thing they say, every word they pronounce wrong, and every snuggle they ask for. I know they will all too soon be a thing of the past and right now I’m feeling like the homework, slumber parties, teen heart-throb pop-star crushes, and sports practices they will be replaced with in the future are not a good trade-off at all!
Hopefully they won’t mind at least a year or two more of going to the pond to feed the duckies and take some pictures…and if they want to go home after and snuggle with their mama, that’s nice too.
