Lovin’ the Big Years! Posted on February 10th, 2012
I love these years. These “big” years.
When they were little they chattered . . . a lot. We have conversations now. Lots of them. So now we chatter together.
When they were little they painted and made messes. I cleaned the messes. Now they clean their own messes and still paint.
When they were little they wanted to push the buttons on the computer and camera. Now they have their own buttons and create masterpieces.
“Fat souls are better than clean floors.” A quote read by daughter #1 from Loving the Little Years by Rachel Jankovic.
“Children are individuals and they don’t forget that.” Another snippet from the above mentioned book.
When we read books we can’t help but share with each other what we are reading. It’s sweet, they like to read to me now.
The oldest girl says she can see the glimmer in my eyes as I sit here typing on her laptop. Ha. She says that I must be typing something poetic about her as she laughs out loud.
She says, “can I read one more thing? This is cute . . . .”
These girls are so funny, they make me laugh.
Yep, little girls grown up. I love these years.
