A PLEA TO ALL MOMS

Calling all Moms!

Do not make the mistakes that I have made.

Time is fleeting.

Stop now. Observe your children.

Hug them. Kiss them. Tell them how special they are to you in your lives.

The laundry can wait. The dust bunnies will still be there.

My little boy has grown up overnight. He turned 9 this weekend and I can barely contain my heart. It aches for him to be small again. I want to take back every time I said, "Not now. Maybe later." I want to go back and fix every mistake I've made in parenting and make it right.
So girls, take an extra minute and give your children a hug (not just at bedtime or another time when it's appropriate....surprise them with your gift.) Treat them as if there is no one in the world as special as they are. It only takes a minute and know that you are changing the life of a child.

Awwww...I felt that way when Bella just turned 2! I can't imagine the meltdown I'll have when she's nine! :)

Happy Birthday to your big little boy. Isn't it true though, he'll always be your baby?

Happy birthday to your little/big boy! The Boy turns five next month so I'm sure I will be feeling something quite similar. Time does fly too fast.
