Sometimes I just can’t help notice how time flies by so quickly.  Just a few years ago, my 2 older kids were all so little.  They didn’t have much cares about anything around them.  Now things have changed quite a lot!  Our eldest, she used to be so little, so frail and so dependent.  Nowadays I sometimes feel like she doesn’t need me for anything much anymore!  She has her own life, has her own friends, and can already decide certain things for herself.  She even has her own moods you’ve got to live with!  Our son, on the other hand, he is a reliable one.  He’s taken upon himself quite a number of responsibilities that I never knew he’d be capable of handling.  He used to be careless and carefree… but he has changed a lot, he has become a responsible big brother to his little sister!  And our little girl… well, she’s definitely growing up!  This one I notice only too well simply because it wasn’t so long ago when I could just carry her in my arms!  She used to be that little toddler running around the house, chanting and singing songs and rhymes she learned from the Disney channel she watches everyday.  Now, she’s a little school girl.  She, like all her elder siblings, now wakes up early in the morning, gets ready and leaves for school everyday of the week.

                                                 BEFORE                     NOW

   

Soon, one by one, these kids will be going their own ways.  Here I am preparing for this moment, that I know will not be too long from today.  The eldest will be turning sixteen this year, and in a couple of years, she’ll be a certified adult.  Meantime, hubby and I are continually trying to adjust to her changing moods that …*sigh*… are all part of this stage of her life .  I have to say we’re both growing up too!  It may be difficult sometimes, but we just love these kids…. and I guess, it’s all worth it!

One thing I know for sure… kids can’t be kids forever… they will all grow up, and we, the parents…. well, we’re growing up with them too!

    I know exactly how you feel! I miss when I had little ones, yet I am enjoying them as almost adults (despite their moods etc.). And you are so right, we’ve learned so much and grown so much alongside them!
    You have a beautiful family!

    Thank you Keli… I have to say that at this point, becoming a mother is the most wonderful experience I’ve had in my whole life!
