Oh sweet child of mine November 21, 2011

I am so selfish.

As I spend time with my youngest, who is 21 months, I cringe at the thought of how fast time passes.  For the past 2 years I have met all his needs.  He cries for me, he hugs and kisses me, he tells me bye bye when I leave, I kiss his boo boos, play with him, change him and feed him.  I love being needed.  I love being wanted. I don’t want him to grow up.  It is so selfish.

I see how my other two have grown and how their needs have changed.  They go off to school, they have friends, they play individually, they argue and fight. I am just not AS important.

I know I will have to let go of him, but I just want to keep every moment now for myself.  Too feel his little hand in mine as we play ring- around- the- rosie, the warmth of him sitting in my lap as we read, still being able to carry him places, tickling his feet, and his wet slobbery kisses are all  pure joy.
