Feeling age through your child’s age..

Monday, April 7th, 2008

For those of you who are reading this and whose children are adolescents you will probably have a good laugh at this. Last week my oldest son turned ten years old. I felt quite old at the fact that I have a ten year old son. He really is no longer a kid anymore and is kind of a pre teenager. I know that the challenges are going to come my way over the next few years. He is a fabulous boy with a wonderful disposition and very kind and caring heat. However I am aware that things may change as he approaches the teenage years.

My little one is six and half years old and I know when she turns seven this year, it will really hit me that we have no more babies at home.

In many ways I prefer the stage that they are at now to when they were infants. Don’t get me wrong, they were cute and adorable when they were infants. But, I do feel that I enjoy them in a different way now and I am certainly not as tired and exhausted as I was when they were infants.

I don’t know if any of you have felt this way before, but I really felt my age through my son’s 10th birthday..
