My T-Ball Baby
The funny thing about this is....I really love the life I have now. I love having my own time and not having somewhere to go every night of the week. I definitely do not sit around moping about this but I've thought a lot about this the last couple of years. Wondering about why, if I love my life, do I miss the past so much? I think I've finally figured out that it's not the past I miss, it's my kids. I miss my kids being kids. I miss the innocence, the fun, the lightheartedness. I miss watching Sesame Street and Hey Dude! I miss Dr. Seuss. I miss bath time and storytime. I miss Saturday morning cartoons. I really miss all that stuff that having kids gets you. I miss the simple pleasure of knowing that my kids have no worries.

I love my adult children. They are fun to talk to and discuss issues with and sometimes I can even borrow money from them! I love who they are and where they're going. I love them more than I ever have. But I still miss my kids...and I suppose I always will.

Quote for the Week:
All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter into another!
