Wordful Wednesday-I blinked

Welcome to Wordful Wednesday……for more information, see “WW” in  my handy dandy tabber box in my right side bar.

I blinked, and suddenly my itty bitty babies were riding big kid bikes without training wheels.

Excuse me while I have a mini melt down.

Sniffle, sniffle, sigh.

I want my children to grow up and become independent, but sheesh.  Give me a little more time to get used to it.  I have a feeling I’m going to blink again and my oldest is going to be in college.

*My friend Robin from Around the Island (incredible photographer living in Israel), entered her portfolio into Artists Wanted, a serious international competition for emerging photographers. Beyond the chance of winning the judges’ grand prize or popular vote prize, after the competition the portfolio database will also be made available to a wide range of industry professionals, gallerists, etc. Voting for her portfolio by awarding it between 1 and 5 stars will help her garner as much positive attention as possible and increase her exposure among the industry movers and shakers.  It only takes a second to click through to Robin’s portfolio and rate it (preferably highly wink.gif). You can vote as often as once a day. Let’s help our fellow blogger get the recognition her work deserves!

  1. My how they have changed! They do grow up so fast….in fact, that is what my WW post is about, too!
    .-= Allison @ Slice of Heaven´s last blog ..It’s all worth it! =-.

  2. You are telling me. They just grow up way too fast. It is not fair.

    From babies to bikes in the blink of an eye. Seriously.
    .-= Jen´s last blog ..Oh, She Is So Not My Daughter =-.

  3. They do grow up so fast, don’t they? I remember I couldn’t wait for my babies to start crawling, walking, feeding themselves, talking… and now I just want time to slow down a little bit so I can hold on to their baby selves a little longer. 🙂

    Off to check out your friend’s portfolio and rate it. 🙂 Happy WW!

  4. Awww….isn’t it bittersweet how fast they grow. It hit me the other day how tall Tommy is and I wanted to cry!!

  8. Love this! Your boys are still babies. My twins can’t ride bikes yet at all! Our nieghborhood is very hilly though and terrible for novice riders. I guess I better get working on them before they go to Kindergarten. Gosh they grow up fast!

  9. Oh I soooo know what you mean. I just had a similar moment that I wrote a post about (probably put it up later this week) where I realized that my daugther is going into middle schoool next year. Middle school! Time sooo flies.

    Loved Robin’s portfolio! Voted already, and will be back to vote more. 🙂

  10. Growing up is hard on everyone; not just the one doing the growing. I cry over it a few times a week. I’m overly emotional like that, so shoot me!

  12. Awww and just as cute now as they were then! Love the bicycle picture!

  13. Awww, they look so tiny compared to their little mini diapers. Too cute! And now…they’re riding big boy bikes. I love the photo of them on the bikes and the way the sun just lights up their hair. They look absolutely heavenly. 🙂
