I read a quote somewhere about change. Something about learning that change is inevitable in life and the better you get with being flexible the happier you will be... something like that. Anyway I feel like our family is going through a change now. In looking back at old pictures for Flashback Friday it has made me realize how everything changes so quickly. Even if it doesn't feel so in the moment. In looking at the boys as babies and toddlers I realized that is probably the easiest time for being a parent. Even though it is physically exhausting, there main needs are pretty basic.
Now that they are getting older there is so much coming at them and so many decisions to make, for them and as parents. Warning: you may cringe at this next sentence..both boys got cell phones for Christmas..I know I know they are young and I never thought they would have them this young but I have to say it's been nice to be connected. Anyway our oldest it seems overnight has become very social, texting a lot. Girls and boys (mostly girls). The other day several of them were texting and trying to set up a get together. They wanted to see a movie together.. It kind of caught me off guard but after finding out all the details we decided to let him go. It went fine but it made me realize he is growing up.
Anyway I'm mostly rambling but for those of you who still have little ones, embrace all the little moments and the innocence. It gets more complicated as we go along.. I always thought it would get easier.. silly me!
