I’ve been struggling this month, facing the reality that my baby is no longer my baby. I’ve been seeing all these milestones she is passing….and they are the last time any of my kids will pass them. It’s making me all weepy and I feel like a crazy cry baby. It’s so freaking hard to look at her and not see my youngest little baby girl. She is now a sassy, smart, and too big for her own good kid. On her way to kindergarten. Ugh!!!!!!!
I posted recently about my struggle to be come a mom, and how blessed I am to have my three amazing daughters…….and that was the start of an emotional rollercoaster that I can’t seem to get off. MY BABY ISN’T A BABY ANYMORE!!!!! None of my girls are babies anymore….my oldest is starting act a lot older than I’m ready for her to be! And even though I’m so happy to be in this stage where they don’t need me as much……I find myself asking……why don’t the need me as much? I’m all over the place with this! I know I’m not the only one…..but this is making me feel crazy!
I’m so happy for my baby as she graduated from preschool…..but I’m not so happy that she’s not really a baby anymore. I know……just wait until high school graduation. I have a few years to go on that…..but if my blog is still up at that point…..you will get the same post about my teary eyed self with much older babies 🙂
