Wordful Wednesday ~ I Am a Broken Record

Wordful Wednesday 411: Wordful Wednesday is like Wordless Wednesday, except WITH words.  It’s for those of us that just cannot be wordless, no matter how much we try.  Add my Wordful Wednesday badge to your post (right side bar under “WW”) if you really want to make me happy, and then add your post link to the linky below. Easy peasy.

I’m the first to admit that when it comes to my kids I. am. a. broken. record.

I do realize this.

It’s always the same refrain.

My kids are growing up too fast.  Why can’t I slow down time?  

I take pictures of my kids and even though I see them in real time I see them seconds later frozen digitally and it hits me all over again how quickly they are growing up.

My girls look like teenagers…..

My 6 year old even looks like a teenager in this picture.

I have these conversations in my head that go something like this, “it’s OK.  They are supposed to grow up.  Remember when you couldn’t wait for them to start talking in real sentences?  Remember?  You wanted THIS!”

And then I have a whispered conversation {a real one} like this one when my youngest crawls into my bed at 4 in the morning:

Me:  “Did you have trouble sleeping?”

John: “No.”

Me: “Did you have a bad dream?”

John: “No.”

Me:  “Then why are you here?”

John:  “Because I missed you and Daddy.”

And I’m reminded that I’m being given little moments of time with my babies back.  Because Someone, somewhere knows that this mama isn’t ready to give up her babies completely….just. quite. yet.

Do you sometimes wish you could turn back time, too?
