Time Flies When You're Having Fun

So, today, our third child turns 18. I cannot believe we now have three adult children in our family (and one almost adult--he's 16). Where has the time gone? It seems like yesterday Mr. Scott (I call him that a lot) was dancing around pushing buttons and flashing that cute smile of his. He hasn't changed much, he still likes to push buttons and flash that nice smile...not so much the dancing though. As a baby, Scott was always happy. He was such a cute little dude, still is.

As a young mother, you never believe that time will go by so fast. It seems like yesterday (I know that phrase is used just way too much...but anyway), that my four little ones were home, and people would say to me, "are they ALL yours?" "Yes," I would proudly respond.

As I write this I look back and wish we were there again. While I feel I was a good mom, I feel I could have done so much more. I guess we all feel that way with much in our lives. "If only I knew what I know now." For all of you who are where I once was; home with small children, many times feeling like you wish you were somewhere else, enjoy every precious moment of your little ones. Before you know it you will be in my shoes wishing you were back, with your little ones.


  1. Precious moments!!! I'm still in the middle of my "children journey" 12, 10 & 8. But homeschooling does allow me the opportunity to see the precious moments a bit more often than most.
    Thanks for the reminder, we can never hear it too much.

  2. Yes, I agree, homeschooling does allow more precious moments. I am so glad I was able to homeschool, and miss those days.
