big kids.

Confession: when I had babies and toddlers I looked upon my friends with older children with a smidgeon of pity. They didn’t have cute little cuddly babies anymore and, well, TEETH. Because let’s face it big kid teeth just ain’t pretty.

But. I’ve seen the light. See, I always knew I was cut out to be a mama of the baby/toddler/preschool set but that was pretty much where my assurances ended. School aged children were the great unknown.

I had no idea that when the time came I would absolutely be smitten by a child who would sit under a tree reading a comic book,

in a bicycle helmet,

alone, while the world spun on around him.

I had no clue how deliriously happy it would make me to see a confident seven year old speed off on her two-wheeler to catch up with her friends,

tossing me a quick “I love you” glance as she went.

The wise mamas always said it would only get better.
So far, they’ve been right.

Amen! You are SO right!!! (and what is it with boys and bike helmets. . . mine run around with them on for hours after they’ve gotten off their bikes!)

THOSE are not big kids. 😉 Try not to blink. My oldest is turning 17 after Christmas. SCARY. And yes – it keeps getting better (but there are some really rough spots between 10 and 14).
