I have read your blog for more than a year and have never commented, but I just wanted to say that you have such beautiful little children. I know that kiddos can be challenging, but oh, how you miss them as little children when they are grown. I am 45 and have three kids ages 24, 18 and 16. I told my dad the other day that I wish I could get those days back. I'd be a better mother, more attentive and would care much less about them appearing well-behaved in public, dressing them just so and making sure everyone is doing the "right thing". I'd just spend my days smiling and paying attention to them. Dad told me something that made me feel better and makes so much sense. He said, "While you're in the midst of a storm (like raising kids and making money), you keep your head down and don't look up until after it is over." Oh, how I wish I had looked up in the middle of the storm and noticed my sweet little babies. I hug them all of the time now, but it's not the same. I see this picture of Sammi and think about the times I miss. Enjoy them, no matter what they are doing at the moment. I promise you will miss these days, so enjoy them and their little pictures and the cute things they say. Don't gloss over them, it's important to look up in the storm. :)
Hi there. What say you?
