Wordful Wednesday – Growing Up

Wordful Wednesday 411Wordful Wednesday is like Wordless Wednesday, except WITH words. It’s for those of us that just cannot be wordless, no matter how much we try. Add my Wordful Wednesday badge to your post (right side bar under “WW”) if you really want to make me happy, and then add your post link to the linky below. Easy peasy.

Grace and I were discussing this morning that next year the kids will be going to 3 different schools.  She’ll be in HIGH SCHOOL, Emma will be in junior high and the boys will still be in elementary school.  I looked over at her and she looked so grown up and I rolled the words HIGH SCHOOL around in my head and I really almost threw up.

How did so much time pass that I almost have a HIGH SCHOOLER?   How did my little girls go from this to young women?  I know it’s the lament of parents all over the world but seriously.   How does this happen?  I want my babies back, even if it’s just for a few minutes.  I miss those baby smells and fat arms and legs and tummies.

  1. Gorgeousness abounds! And I hear ya – time is flying by way too fast. I keep forgetting *not* to blink, and I still haven’t found that pause button yet. 🙂

  2. I know exactly how you feel. Next year, get this….I will have one in COLLEGE, one in high school (10th grade), two in middle school (6th and 8th), and one in elementary (4th). There should be some special award for that, don’t you think??

  3. I fully understand. My oldest is graduating from high school this year and it’s rough. I’ll let you know if it gets easier!

  4. There is NO WAY you will have a high schooler! WHAT? They look too young to be getting that big. Dangit, does that mean I am getting old when I say that?

    You have beautiful girls and that is a gorgeous photo of them. I guess I can’t say much about growing up since my barely grown-up daughter made me a young grandmother. 🙂

  5. I have a middle school student. I can totally relate. I want to stop the clocks.

  6. i know what you mean… time flies….
    where does it go?????

  7. Wow, they are so gorgeous, Angie. But High School? Yeah, WOAH. 😉

  8. I am there with you, Angie, absolutely. Oldest starting ninth, middle heading to sixth, and the boy in K. Three different schools, all starting and ending at the SAME TIME. I’m trying not to think about the logistics of it all. And I look at them, both of them nearly my height, the oldest practially eye level with me, and the middle girl who is nearly three years younger, only a few inches shorter. It’s amazing. And breathtaking. And saddening. And if only, if only, if I could do it all over but still be able to enjoy right now (and so the cycle goes of my wanting them as babies but enjoying them as tweens but really truly wanting them again as babies).
