Wordful Wednesday-growing up

*Wordful Wednesday is for those of us that like to showcase a photo(s) but that just can't seem keep our mouths shut about it(them). If you'd like to play along, post a photo on your blog, and let the words roll. Feel free to "capture" my 7 Clown Circus button on the left to link back to me, and be sure to add yourself to Mr. Linky. Thanks for playing along!



It's hit me especially hard the past few weeks that my kids are getting big. I mean, big, big. Growing up big. They are sprouting like weeds, and ALL of them look so much older lately. So much older. NONE of them look like babies anymore. Not one. And then there are rites of passage like graduations that slap me upside the head and really make me take notice.

This sweet child is going begin kindergarten in a few short months. My twins are supposed to go in just over a year. How did that happen? Someone send me a time stopper, please.

Cecily R said...

I am so not ready for any of this growing up stuff...not with ANY of my kids.

Tell that boy of yours to stop getting bigger. Growing up before our eyes is not allowed!

Brenda said...

It is hard when they get big all of a sudden, but its also nice. I enjoy my adult children more than I can say.

Lady Di said...

It is a little sad to see your babies grow up. I don't think it is really going to hit me until my youngest gets to kinder. Who, by the way is quite the character as evident in my Wordful Wednesday.

Wow, time does fly! When my toddler and I are out and we run into a mom with a child who is one year older than my daughter, I think gosh, that will be my little girl before I know it!

Adorable. Time flies doesn't it? I can't believe how quickly the two years since I've had my son have gone by. I know you feel it every time one of your children has a birthday. Amazing isn't it? Time stops for no one.

So sweet! They grow too fast.

Dana said...

What a cutie! Seriously though....it's heartbreaking, to me anyway, that they grow up SO fast. Have you ever seen CLICK with Adam Sandler? I'd love to have a remote like that just so I could rewind and watch over and over some precious life moments gone by...

All too soon that will be a college gown he is wearing...

Here is my WW!

I feel the same way. And it'll be worse when my last kids are heading to your kids ages.
I dunno why, I can't do anything about it, I knew this was going to happen.
I'm not sure if it's cause I'll miss them once their at school. Or the loss of me being the one that spends most of the time with them is gone or what.
Masaru starts next year.

Kacey R. said...

Oh so precious!!!! When we first had Ryder we were told a million times over - enjoy it right now they grow up too fast. We were tired of hearing it - but now we realize what everyone was saying. It is so true. Then again, when the Twinkies can communicate better, that will be so delightful. lol

Kimberly said...

Aww..the first years of school do seem to jump up on you, and then fly by so quickly. I have more than one going to kindergarten in August, and it is taking forever to get here, but I know it is going to go by very fast once it starts..and before you know it, you will be complaining about them driving :)

Kalisha said...

Congratulations to your little graduate! Those are such sweet photos--I can't imagine what it will be like when my girl's reach that age.

Time goes by so fast. I always tell my 2 and 3 year old that I don't want them to grow up--I want them to be this age forever! It is the sweetest time.

Sara said...

Awe! SOOOOOO cute all grown up!

Courtney said...

It is so bittersweet to watch them grow. Congrats on the graduation!

Are You Serious! said...

♥ He's so cute! I totally understand ya! My twins are going to start kindergarten this fall and then Liv the next it's crazy how fast it goes by!

Susie said...

Mine too! It goes so fast:-)

Jen said...

I couldn't agree with you more. Time flies. I got one that will start kindergarten too this fall and my babies are going to be 2. Who said that could happen?

Rachel said...

Oh that boy of your is the cutest EVER! Hope he has a fabulous time in the big K!!!

Just A Mom (Call me JAM for short) said...

Sooo cute! Yes... time keeps marching on!

Debra said...

Angie, NO WAY that the boys will be starting Kindergarten that soon!!!!!!!! They are only a yr older than my boys. Oh yeah. They will be starting Kindergarten in 2 yrs. YIKES!

I am feeling the same way. Not liking it at all. Though i will be able to get the entire house cleaned while they are at school so we can play more. I still miss them so much when they are gone all day!

Mel Fraase said...

Aww, he looks so happy! I know what you mean about the time! I will now have TWO kids in full time school next year! Flying by.
Enjoy it all!!

http://fraasefamily.blogspot.com/2009/05/wordlesswordful-wednesday-laundry.html

brunger bunch said...

He looks so cute!! When you find the stopper could you please send it my way. My baby is growing up way to fast, and I am not sure what I will do when she starts kindergarten. The other 2 are growing faster than I would like too. Now I know what my mother meant when she told me that time flies, and before you know it, your kids will be grown up and gone...I can really see that ahead now, and it scares me!!

Justine said...

Aw, your kids are still tiny things. Imagine what it's like for me. i've got one going into 3rd grade and another 7th!

Justine :o )

Cassie said...

Aw congrats to him! He looks great in his little cap and gown!

Run DMT said...

Congratulations to your little one! They grow up way too fast, don't they?

Mandy said...

I agree. Time is flying. I always feel like there is so much I want to do with the kiddo's...can't fit it all in!

julie said...

Cute, cute, cute! We have preschool graduation tomorrow night - I'd better bring a box of tissues! :O

girlytwins said...

OMGoodness Garrett looks SO adorable in his cap & gown. I know the feeling. We just signed the girls up for preschool two hours a day two days a week next fall. Mommy is not ready for that 'sniff 'sniff.

Laura said...

Cute! scary how fast they grow up, isn't it?!?!?!?

Banteringblonde said...

how fun that he gets to wear a cap and gown! cute!

Casey's trio said...

I totally know how you feel! Garrett looks so proud of himself in those pictures:)

Michelle said...

My oldest is going to be in High School next year. I swear it was just yesterday when she was done with preschool!!

Totally cute pic of your big boy!

Kristin said...

wow. A real cap and gown. Your preschool is posh. He's one handsome devil.

Brooke said...

I can't believe that the twins are going to start school in just a year! Where has the time gone?!

jsprik said...

too cute!! they grow up so fast, dont they?? ;)

shopannies said...

know exactly what you are talking about I posted a graduation picture of my own

ChefDruck said...

I feel the same way and it makes me so sad. I've started wishing for a 4th, just to get that sweet baby smell fix again, but I see from your post that the baby craving never stops, even after the 4th! And shopping for shoes today with my 3 totally put me over the edge, hard to imagine throwing another person in the mix!

BoufMom9 said...

Oh wow! How adorable!!!!
Kids growing up = heartbreaking

Lindsay said...

I'm with you. I have NO idea how time flies SO fast once you have kids.

Shannon said...

You know I am right there with you. We had preschool graduation today. ITs all too much to take in. Life goes way too fast...way too fast.

Kimberly Kihega said...

Time goes by way too fast! My son graduated kindergarten this year. Enjoy the moments while they last!
