Parents, how do you handle the heartache of your babies becoming not so little anymore? I don't think I can take it...
I cried at graduations....kindergarten, elementary school, junior hi, high school. I finally stopped at college graduation! 😊
Don't know. I'm handling it, but can't tell you how. Each of us is different. But I still can't believe my baby girl is gonna be 16 in two weeks!
Wait till they grow up and have their own babies. So many feels.
Hee, that'll be fun. It's what's getting me through for now. :-) Thank you for sharing this!
I just enjoyed her as a *person* at every stage. I wouldn't want her to have remained a baby forever just because she was cute as a baby.
This. So far, every stage has been the best part. No, I don't have a baby anymore. I have a six year old boy who wants to grow his hair long like Thor, likes to play Minecraft, and drops casual lingual bombs like aesthetic and mediocre. 😍
"aesthetic"! Dreamy! I say the same, every age has been my favorite. I'm sometimes afraid I'll stop liking parenthood, but more amazement always follows :-)
Get this... The question was, "Mom, why do substations have such terrible aesthetics?"
I am constantly afraid that I'm gonna hit the point where it stops being awesome. But so far it hasn't. 🍻 Here's hoping it never will. 😊
Omg, that is great!! :-)
I just do.. I know they are happy and healthy, so that makes it a little easier.. The hardest part is my grandchildren, they lived near me all their lives, now they moved 900 miles away.. It's been rough....
Maybe it's time to move!
Every stage has it's own challenges and excitement. You will look back with fondness, but don't miss today.
Love it :-)
Have more if you want a little one.
Unfortunately it's not an option, but thank you! When the situation is right I hope to foster. Pets too. Lots of love to give, don't wanna waste it! :-)
I can't help. My five year old is about to start school this year and I'm avoiding the subject because I can't handle it.
Meee toooo. I'm a wreck!!
Just found out I have 6 days until registration and I feel like I'm going to have a panic attack 😳
My oldest is turning six in a couple weeks. Yes, they grow up, but that's part of the beauty of it. Don't hang in the past. As the great sage put it:
Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop to look around once in a while, You could miss it.
the great sage, hahaha :)
I actually had to look that up. I'm so embarrassed.
My baby will be 19 next month. It doesn't get easier, you just learn to enjoy the time you have with them. 😔
I still have my 8 year old daughter too
My son is 22 now and I can now look back and say, he is a good young man and I always knew he'd have his own life one day. That said, I'd give anything to hold that newborn just once more.
Ugh, I wish I knew. I just stared crying yesterday when I realized my baby starts kindergarten next week.
really? mine tooooo. wahhhhhhhhh D-': during today's workout i watched a music video where the kid grows up and i think i flooded the basement
My oldest starts K in two weeks. I don't know why, but it's not affecting me nearly as much as the thought of his little brother turning 4.
Maybe because he's the youngest? My poor only child gets all of my momness but I'd imagine the youngest growing up would be harder to deal with.
My son is going to be 3 soon. I enjoy watching him grow up. The last 3 months have been particularly amazing.
Pictures and new accomplishments. Our baby turns 1 Wednesday and looking at all the nb pictures sucks, but she is doing so much learning and cool stuff now
