The art of Parenting...

Why is it that sometimes we catch ourselves in a moment when we think about things into the future and it causes us to bawl? Just today after my son came home from spending the night at his grandpa's house, I was watching him and his sister hug and kiss all over each other. Apparently they missed each other. It melts my heart to see them so loving towards each other. I instantly start playing the song "Then they do" by Trace Adkins. I started to cry thinking, WOW, my son is going to be 5 years old in two months and my baby girl is a year and a half. Where on earth does the time go? Seriously, next month I register my son for Kindergarten, YES, it's here already! I can't believe it! I look at the boys and see how they have grown in the 7 years I have been with my husband. David was almost 3 and Jake was 1 1/2 when I started dating Dave. Now David is going to be 10 next month and Jake will be 9 in July. It's amazing how you can love someone else kids like they are your own. I never thought I could. Our family is so special to me. I want my husband to know that I will never take him or our family for granted. Not now, not ever. Thank you for letting me be a part of your life, and most of all, Thank you for making me a mom to the two most beautiful children EVER! I LOVE YOU!!!!
