Where does the time go?

OMG! It's June already!

What happened to the year? I'm specifically referring to the school year, but I could say the same for the calendar year. In another 25 days half of the year will be over. Around here, school ends on June 26th.


My little boy, CB, has grown up so much this year. Come the end of the month, he's no longer a kindergartner, but a first grader. Learning more responsibility as well as the typical reading, writing and arithmetic. *Sniff Sniff* When did this happen? The worst part is that it happened right in front of my eyes.

Then, of course, there's the Mayor. She successfully navigated her way through second grade and all that goes with it. It's not unusual for relationships to change during the second and third grade years. So, I'm a little nervous f.or her, but hopeful that most of the girls in her grade won't "change" too much. Since they were together from Pre-K, many of these girls have always been polite, accepting of others and cheered one another on. But, third grade is different and only time will tell.

Monkey Girl grows everyday. Make it stop! Oh, it's not that CB and Mayor aren't growing, they are. It's just that MG is our last baby and I'm sad to see her grow up. It's bad enough that she's in a big girl bed and not in her crib anymore. Btw, that was not my idea, but hers. As an aside, my husband and I bought the girls bunk beds and MG decided she should sleep in her new bed (the bottom bunk). Naturally, she wanted the top bed, but we said absolutely not to that one. But, I digress, I anticipate that this summer, I will start potty training her. It's the last milestone for a baby.

Please someone find the pause button and tell me where it is.

when you figure out how to press the pause button, let me know. I've got one who finsihed her first year of college last month and one who is finishing her junior year of high school this month. where did my babies go?

SB- If I ever find the pause button, you'll be the first one to know.

Natalie- Hold on as long as you can, that's what I'm trying to do.

Love the comments about the pause button! Been looking for that. It seems to be a theme on the blogs I'm reading tonight, too.

Your little one must be close in age to my boy. He's 33 months.

I know how you feel, even though I'm watching our granddaughters grow through those stages rather than our children.

You must live near us -- school ends here (Rochester vicinity) about the 26th of June too. My husband's a school bus driver so we're counting the days as faithfully as the kids!

It is so bittersweet to see them grow and mature in such little time. And time seems to fly by doesn't it!?

I feel the same way with my daughter and it breaks my heart. LEt me know if you ever find that pause button.

Holly- My youngest daughter is 30 months old now and growing like a weed.

Bama Cheryl- We live on Long Island. My sister isn't too far from you, she's in Sackets Harbor (near Watertown).

Momisodes- Bittersweet is the perfect word to describe how I feel sometimes. I promise, you'll be the first to know, if I ever find the pause button.

The one thing that all kids hav in common is the inexorable growth from one stage to another. Like a runaway freight train - they cannot be stopped.

Joyce-Anne said...

Lceel- Say it ain't so! I know, but I was HOPING to slow it down a little.
