Chapter 87: Growing Up is Hard

Growin' up is hard! 

I wish I had lived more wholly in the moments. I truly thought I had.. but, I look back and wish I could have squeeeeeezed a bit more into the time that passed- OH SO- quickly. 

Let's talk baby food. This was when it HIT me, HARD! My littles are not little. They are eating three meals a day. THREE. And I don't like it one bit. NOT ONE! Most people would be excited about this change. Not me. I want my milk babies back. When they only had milk, they were little. Now, they have food. Consequently, they are big. 
At least this is my justification in the matter. 

I don't think this came around with my past birthday. It truly came when I was planning the girls meals for the week. 

When you are little you always want to grow up. You can't wait to grow up.  But, as a Mom, I want the time to freeze. I say every month is blast and my favorite. But, 10 months.. OH EM GEE!
 It's amazing. 

Darn the days of baby food making... 
I wish I could have back my "milk only" babies. 

This is How Children Grow: 

When you see a smiling face
                          Their happiness all over the place
Singing, laughing, cries of glee,
Come they say, Play with me
The slide, the swing, the monkey bars.
Look at them close to see who they are.
Lots of races, Ready, Set, Go.
This is how the children grow.

If you watch them everyday
You'll see they learn as they play
They'll do what they see,
 and say what they hear.
You're their teacher though out the years.
Their ideas and thoughts in their eyes shine.
Imagination is a glimpse of their mind
When you’re not looking, don't you know
This is when the children grow.

Watch them as they learn to walk
Listen to them when they talk
Keep them safe, away from harm
Wrap them gently within your arms
Teach them to share and how to take turns.
Set good examples from which they will learn.
At home, at school, wherever they go
This is where the children grow.
