This past week my youngest has been feeling a little under the weather. Why is it that its the only time they are good? Its takes a cold and slight fever to get them to relax! I guess its their bodies way of telling them to chill out! I hate when my babies are sick. I will let them sleep in bed with me and put hubby on the couch, not that he minds because he gets to watch tv and stay up late to a quiet living room. I love the extra cuddle time with the kids, they grow up so fast. I was laying in bed thinking about how fast they are growing and I suddenly had this overwhelming feeling that one day this will all be over, I will not be able to cuddle them like this. They will eventually move out of my house, have their own families and children to cuddle with. It was quite scary, my whole life is my family and suddenly I had this feeling that one day when they are gone and its just me and their daddy what will I do? I know it may seem a little premature since I have many years still with them but, eventually, it will happen and I don't like it. I hope and pray that I can learn to enjoy and take every day minute to minute...It seems like we are always rushing to do the next thing and I want to try to slow it down a bit. My dad often tells me that he misses the "pitter patter" of the little feet running across the floor. I now can imagine what it must feel like. So with the holidays approaching and all the family activities going on I am going to try and learn how to relax and really appreciate the time we have. It goes so fast and I don't want to miss a thing!
