Oh, I know this I do. I'm so thankful for this time with my boys. I will miss them deeply when they grow up and move out! I almost cry just thinking about it, and we still have at least 6 years to go - LOL!
Oh, so true! 6 here are done with home education, four are still working their way through. I don't have play-do on the floor, a diaper pail, crib sheets to wash, footed jammies, hugs around my leg while I am making dinner from a very short person, crooked "I <3 You" messages...you get the idea. (Although now I have several grandchildren, so the play-do may once again appear--we are already working on cars and Duplos and jumbo crayons on the floor.)
I don't know what I want to/should do when I grow up! Er, when the *kids* all grow up. My house will be empty, but my heart so full.
I don't need any reminder... ;>( We are in the midst of scholarship apps and finishing well with our only child. I'm excited for her and dreading what's next for me. I deep thinking Roots and Wings - it's just part of the process. I should go buy stock in Kleenex about now. My number one job, as always, Pray, Pray, Pray! Thanks for going the walk with us, Lee. You have been a HUGE blessing.
LOL, if we were living in our dream home, I'd be constantly yelling about horse muck being tracked into the house, bridles left draped over the backs of chairs, and vet bills.
