… because they grow so very fast
Josh was three the first time I met him and has been a piece of my heart ever since. His dad and I dated for several years and we grew closer as a unit of three until we became a family in 2001.
Josh was in 1st grade when I became step-Mom.
Sometimes I want moments of my day, week, month to go fast and then I remember how fast the years zoom by. I get frustrated with the toddler crying, the 1st grader fussing or the 3rd grader whining. Then I remember, Josh was there at one point in his life. It didn’t last forever. One bad moment in a sea of happy moments is nothing to get hung-up on.
Josh, you have shaped me as a mother in intangible ways.

PS: We laugh. We were the young parents at 38 years old at graduation this past Friday. We will be the old wise parents at 55 years old when The Duke graduates in 2029. Ah perspective. This family is full of it! 🙂
