School Is In Session!

I can hardly believe my first born is a high school freshman. How did time fly by so quickly? I remember when he was a little boy, holding my hand to cross the street. Part of me is so excited for him to grow up, to see what his future holds. Will he go to college? What career will he pursue? Will he get married? Will he have kids? Will he travel the world? Will he be happy? I want only the best for my young man.

Part of me is really sad watching him grow up so fast. There are times I wish that he needed me for everything. Sometimes I miss singing him to sleep, teaching him how to read, playing with his Matchbox cars and racing them throughout the house, having our Disney Channel marathon New Years Eve celebrations, and just knowing I still had so many years left to enjoy his childhood. Watching your child grow up is a bittersweet feeling.

 

My daughter is almost a year and a half, but I know I will blink my eyes and she will be in high school. I am trying to enjoy every phase of hers, remembering just how quickly flies by. From the teething to the tantrums, it’s all worth it. Every smile she gives me, each hug, every cuddle, and each moment we spend together is precious. I am enjoying the firsts. I missed many of those with my son, so I am trying to make the most of it this time around.

Both of my children are precious, not ready to let them go. Luckily, I don’t have to just yet. From soccer games to seemingly endless renditions of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, I still have many moments of their childhood to savor. I know my son isn’t overjoyed about school beginning, but I have high hopes that this will be his best year yet. Here’s to an amazing year ahead, the sky is the limit! Go get ’em! And parents, let us not waste a single moment we have with them. From homework to teenage angst, we must remember that this too shall pass and not forget to enjoy the good moments. 🙂

The Path Before You

20160716_150302

No longer a child and yet not an adult either

Caught in between and feeling frustrated

You don’t want to be treated with kid gloves

And yet you feel suffocated by the responsibilities

“Where am I headed?”, you wonder

 

The road ahead has many forks you could choose

The path before you is yours and yours alone

And, my son, do not let your mind worry so

There is no need to know your direction today

Just keep your eyes and options open

 

Both scared and excited about your future

You have many ideas about what you’d like to do

And unsure of which one to stick with

I truly believe that you’ll do quite well

No matter which path you choose

 

Don’t be afraid to listen to advice

Many have much wisdom to offer you

But, don’t let them dictate what you decide

In the end, your future is yours and not ours to lead

One foot in front of the other, one day at a time
