My Babies Are Growing Up *SIGH*

Children grow up!  It’s a fact of life and I knew this when I had them, all 4 of them!  But who knew it would all happen so quickly?

Milestones kind of bring awareness to this for me and I can’t help but reflect on everything and get emotional. We have some pretty major milestones coming up.

The girls…my first “set”…are beautiful, vibrant, and flourishing in the grown up, and almost grown up world.

Bry is on her own (well that’s a long story, but she’s grown) and a gorgeous young woman.  She’s about to make a major move in her life and whether I agree or not, I will always support my first born!  *SIGH*

Paetyn is graduating from high school next month.  Graduating from high school?  She was just born last month, how can she graduate next month?  She’s beautiful, she’s wonderful, she’s sensitive, and she’s almost 18, and on the cusp of adulthood. *SIGH* She will do amazing things in life!
And then there’s the babies.  My second “set”, my second chance to get this parenting thing done right.  I have so many years left with them, but wait!  When did these two get so big?  I’ve been looking at them in wonderment lately.  Growing like weeds, and becoming little people…not babies at all anymore! *SIGH*

Bug and Bubby are funny, stunning, mischievous, full of life, and fabulous!  They keep me hopping on a regular basis, but they need to stop growing up so dang fast!

So *SIGH*, the first “set” is grown, and the second “set” is growing up too fast.  I love who and what they are all becoming and that they are each so unique yet very much alike in many ways.  They are, all 4 of them, after all my babies no matter how big or small.  They will ALL always be my babies.  
I’m approaching a pretty big birthday (no I will NOT be 50…SHUSH UP) this coming week, and I think I’m a little overly emotional. *SIGH*  Bare with me as I hurdle these milestones.  I’m not unhappy at all, just feeling my mortality I guess, and missing my “babies”.  Supermama Powers Activate!
