Today was the last day of school for my two peeps
and I'm saying
~ WWWWHHHHHOOOOO~HOOOOOOO! ~
(I am grateful we have been given another, very successful school year!)
I didn't fall and hit my head
there's too many boxes everywhere for that!!
lots o` stuff!
looking for somewhere to be ~
(another days post)
( I am grateful that subject can be another post!)
I'm the kind of mom that
loves having them around!
(I am grateful that I love being their mom!)
(such a strong, negative word that I only use it when necessary!)
that being said, let me say it again
the song "The cat's in the cradle"
i hear it
... I bawl
I didn't say cry
I said bawl!!
gut wrenching fetive holiday song "Christmas Shoes" does that to me too!)
(I swear I have have the little match stick girl complex!)
(I am gratefull I have a sensitive heart)
Time is soooo quick
it seems as if it was just yesterday that I was adoringly rocking them in my arms
Nathan can pick me up in his!
(I am grateful they are STRONG, healthy, happy young adults)
As they get older, our summers get busier
that cool breeze that just went by was a ~ f.b.s.!!
(f.b.s. = fly by summer!!!)
We no sooner get to the beach
slather on the spf
stick our feet in the sand
and target has college ruled paper and mechanical pencils on their shelves!!
(sniff, sniff...gone, baby gone are the days of crayola crayons!)
(love the smell and feel of a fresh box of crayons!)
and I'm thinking
where'd the summer go?!
so I am grateful for each and every precious moment .
two teenagers = lots o' friends
and I hear things like:
we love ya` mom...
but can I have the keys to the car
oh by the way, some $ for a movie too?!
or how about can I have a friend over for dinner
and 4 show up
I think it's my cooking ~ HA!!HA!!
(I am gratefull I can, do & enjoy cooking!)
I know very soon they will be off to college and on down the road
and I'll be at the kitchen sink
doing just a few little dishes
...the cat's in the cradle
