Asking Time to Slow Down.

I love the first day of school. Even now, when I'm not in school,
and my children are not old enough yet, I still love it. 

It's so neat to open up my Instagram and Facebook
and see my friends' kids going off to school. Makes me teary-eyed for them.

Not sure what it is with these photos lately (the past few weeks,
since everyone starts school at different times. LOL), but they make me cry.
I guess because I remember when my friends' "big" kids were babies.
And now they're big, and *I* have babies.
And soon my babies will be bigs and off to school. :(
I wasn't expecting to cry, while seeing all these.
Really, I wasn't. But then I see more photos and hear more stories,
and I lose it. *sigh*
Not sure if I'm crying because I feel them... their bigs (that used to be littles)
are all going off to school, or if I'm crying because that will be me soon...
seeing Hattie off to school and watching Meyer be sad
that his big sister is away from him all day. :(
Probably a mixture of both.

I just want to say, "Time!! Darn you! Slow down! PLEASE!
For the love of everything that is precious in my little world!

We went to a playdate today. My friend Angela and I had our daughters, 7 weeks apart (we met in birthing class) and our sons, 11 weeks apart. How cool is that?
This was the first time our sons "met," and as you can see,
they were both pretty stoked about it...

This was only seconds before Meyer accidentally clawed at Asher's head, 
and he proceeded to scream bloody murder. LOL.
And so, it begins. ;-)
The girls were too busy playing to have their picture taken.

Just another reminder that it goes SO fast. 
Soon, they will be in school, and I'll be a blubbering mess because,
"My babies are going off to school, and it goes so fast!"
*sniff* *sniff*
