Where Does the Time Go?

This past mother's day was not my best.  My pain meds were a bit too much from my surgery and I was very ill Saturday night and just starting to fill better on Sunday.  I had a beautiful cake decorated by Kayla at school, too bad food didn't taste good yet.  They got me a cute little solar light frog that I tucked in my flower bed later this week.  It seems like just yesterday my babies looked like this.
 Now they are a bit rotten and look like this.
I am easing into the idea of adult children.  I'm actually looking forward to seeing life changing ideas and successes.  I wonder how they are going to change their minds and deviate from current goals set.

  I'm ready with a lifetime of learned advice, but hope to only give it when they want it.  I know I'll be the mom they can "roll their eyes" about when we get together and reminisce at future holiday dinners.  But one thing I know for sure, is I worked hard at everything I did for this two little faces who have grown great big soft spots on my heart.  I will NEVER regret being their mother!


  1. I hope you are feeling better soon. I hate taking pain meds. Your children look very sweet to me.

  2. I think Dakota has the same expression on his face in both pictures! What cuties they were and are. I hope you are feeling better by now.

  3. hope you are feeling better. And your days as a mom are gonna get even better. We have 3 adult children in their 20's and they haven't disappointed us yet. Its awesome to see what we tried so hard to instill in them is still there. Yes, they make their own decisions now, and they are still learning some things the hard way. And you, too, will be amazed at how your hard work as parents was not at a loss. Enjoy their new chapters in their lives.

  4. I hope you're feeling good now. I think you're kids are great and time does fly by...I can't believe I have a Grandkiddo graduating! Now that's time flying by!

  5. Hope you are feeling better by now! Adult kids are fun, I think. But it's a bit of an adjustment...
