Flashback #Friday - No More Toddlers Just More Drama
As I was saying goodnight to my kids last night, I released how much they have grown. I know that it is life to grow up but I miss them being little. It seems like there's less togetherness and more texting and video gaming going on. With age comes more independence and I'm happy they are so strong willed but it's the little things like hugs, hanging out with us and please less "NO" that I really miss. I hear that word a lot and I remember when they couldn't talk and they were so open to just following me around with smiles on their faces.
I have been on a quest to stay involved with their lives both at school and home, because it seems in this busy world I was told most parents don't ask a lot of questions. I am after all very interested in what my kids are doing and I have told them they can talk to me about anything. As they have grown there is sometimes less talking from them and more of me preaching I often think they are hearing Charlie Brown's teacher - you know the wonk, wonk wonk, sounds. But I do think they understand where I'm coming from.
I know the world is a busy place but, I always want to make time for my kids. Sometimes I realize I'm the one working on my computer/iPhone but, I have always said if you need me you come and get me.
This is dedicated to 2 of the most loved kids in the world ;-)
