Wish I Had Known

I wish I had known when it was the last time I would push my baby in a stroller. The last time we would play at a playground. The last time the girls would want to ride a Merry-Go-Round.

These were part of my everyday life. No more.

Not that by knowing I would have appreciated the experience more, I just would have given a proper 'Good-Bye'.

Time goes by so fast.

  1. Oh Ann, I so know how that feels! Not that I would have done a whole lot differently or anything...but I might not have hurried home from the playground to start dinner quite as many times. My new goal: more pictures this year. I have baby/toddler books filled....why is it when they turn 9 or 10 we slow down?

  2. Quite true. Even further back, I also wonder when was the last time my parents, siblings, and I had our last family dinner together, before marriages, moving out, etc. Oh well -- growing up is good for everyone.

  4. One would also think they would like the same things you like ~ I mean they are from us and learn from us every day right?! It's amazing how different they can be at times. All I ever ask is she enjoy some "girly" things from time to time ~ is that too much to ask for?! I mean seriously, I just want to teach her girls should wear more than sweat pants from time to time. :D

  7. I'm sitting here crying. I've been thinking the same things the past few weeks. I miss when my kids were little. They're growing up and don't need me so much anymore. It makes me so sad!!!! Hugs to you!!!!

  8. I think the only time we realize this is when the opportunity has already passed you by...sad that way.
