Summer in our house officially starts tomorrow afternoon. My little girl is just a few hours away from moving on to second grade!
In the fall, I'll have two little ones heading off to school.
I sound like a broken record lately. I keep repeating how unbelievable it is that they've grown so quickly.
But seriously...where has the time gone?
They have grown up so much and developed their own personalities, mannerisms, likes and dislikes. They are their own person these days. I feel like they should still be my little babies, relying on me for every aspect of their lives. Tee can pretty much take care of herself. She's even changed a diaper or two lately!
I'm just the one who makes sure their clothes are clean and there is food on the table. Though, frankly, they don't exactly need me for that, either. Bam loves doing laundry, and tries to shove me out of the way so he can do it by himself. And Tee would make dinner every night if I let her.
Again, what happened? Where are my babies? I'm trying to savor every second of Gray's babyness. She is three months old now. (WHAT?!?)
So yeah...even my baby is growing too fast!
This summer is going to be busy. Birthday parties and graduation parties. Trips to the library and to the park. Book reading activities and a folder of homework to keep the oldest busy (though she already started, and would have finished if we had let her!). Family barbecues and weddings. Fourth of July carnival and fireworks up north. Maybe even a night out for our wedding anniversary (now I'm getting carried away...). Bam starts a summer program next week to evaluate his needs for the upcoming school year. Playdates and pool parties and movie nights galore.
Savoring each moment is my motto for the summer. Each memory. Each of my babies as they grow more and more every single day.
Here's to a savory summer for everyone!
