I don't want to waste it...

I know her monkey towel days are numbered. I'm so excited about who she's becoming but wonder how anyone can be as crazy amazing as the little girl I already know. I wasn't expecting seven years old to feel like limbo. Someone should have warned me.

Why didn't you warn me?

Is it going to be like this forever?

I have a feeling it is...

I had these feelings when Brendon was little, but now that I know I am done having babies, I really cling to every moment I have with Gabriel. I know how fast it goes...

This is Amy BTW

It's comforting to know I'm not the only one. I remember feeling this way when she was two... when she was three... Now that I feel this way when she's seven and I see my sister's own children graduating from high school I realize one day I'm going to wake up and Ruth won't be sitting in the dining room making chickens out of egg cartons. I don't know if I'll know who I am if there's no one sitting at my dining room table making chickens out of egg cartons...
