The thing I keep wondering is....how did these girls get so big? How did that happen? And where are these minutes going?
How did Lil' N change from this pint-sized three year old ready for her first day of dance...into this five year old dramatic diva?
And how did just one year turn my Lil' R from a toddler...to a lovely preschool lady?
There are times when I think my life needs a soundtrack. Perhaps this explains why I like musicals, but at times, it would just seem easier to explain my thoughts and feelings by bursting into song. While I won't, the lyrics to the song "Blink" keep running through my head today: Teach me to number my days...and count every moment before it slips away...take in all the colors before they fade to gray ...I don't want to miss even just a second more of this.
In all honesty, I have to tell you that these thoughts are not coming from a "perfect" day - quite the opposite, in fact. There have been temper tantrums and bad attitudes and disobedience and tears. But as I lay in bed tonight, with the words from "Blink" running through my head, I remembered that "this too will pass." And when it does, I will miss it.
