tempus fugit...time flies

I have mentioned before I have a few posts or articles I want to share with you'll. I want to have them in my blog book when it's printed but I also know there are others out there who struggle with the same feelings described in this post written by Imparting Grace.
Some days I feel like everywhere I turn there is advice on how to parent. Many conversations I have are about parenting...decisions that are HUGE (at the time), actions we take as parents, etc. I find myself thinking about the future and how these "parenting actions" will affect it.
Around this time the past few years I begin to have these feelings, the ones of "oh my goodness another year has passed." As Sloane's 2nd birthday approaches then within 2 months we are celebrating Wyatt's birthday too I can't help but get a little emotional.
I am not emotional because I want them to be babies again but just because of what we have, where we are, how much the need me/us, at this point in their lives. I know there will be a time where we are no longer needed to complete those every day tasks. There will be a day when Wyatt doesn't tell me each and every time he has to use the restroom. He no longer needs my help much in the bathroom but still feels the need to tell me when he has to go. It makes me laugh...but I still smile thinking these are the little moments I am going to miss.
There are days that creep by, ones that I can't wait for Mark to get home, ones I get angry or have no patience...when I put my head on my pillow I thank the Lord his blessing are new every morning...I am thankful for another day. There are also days I don't want to end, full of kisses and hugs, fun games, playful times together, and everyone is getting along. Each day is different...
I am blessed to be the one God chose to be their Mommy...I am so blessed...

Please take a second and read the post HERE about how quickly time flies...
