I was messing around in my pictures folder last night and came across these two from a few years ago. Boy, how time flies! I can't believe my oldest daughter is 15 and nearly ready to get her temps. The very idea that she'll be driving age next year terrifies me to no end. How did this happen? I'd swear yesterday they were both still playing with their stuffed animals.
Even crazier. My niece is turning 21 this month. Good lord! I remember her potty training days! She's going to college and grown into a gorgeous young woman. It's strange though, because I don't feel any older--until I look in the mirror. Whoa! How'd the years creep up on me? I have this overwhelming urge to turn back the clock so I can get all those precious years back again. Do you ever have those days? Where you just feel as if you've woken up from a long sleep and somehow several years have just breezed right by? Is this like a mid-life crisis thing or something?
I keep imagining my daughters graduating and going off to college, getting married, having babies and leaving me in the dust. I'll be the annoying mother they avoid. Ugh! Can someone please stop this runaway train?! I want off! LOL
