Rushing Over Me
Some days, I wake and realize my children have changed in the night. One may have grown a bit taller. Or the other may have made a leap in language development.
And other days, I feel the changes occur right before my eyes, and it rushes over me live a wave.
Yesterday was one of those days, as I ventured to our local botanical gardens with my baby. But she was no longer a baby at all. She was a big girl, playing independently amidst the stations set up for preschoolers.
I had worried she wouldn't be old enough to participate. But she was just right!
And as I watched a friend do the delicate balancing act of managing her toddler and her young baby - the very same act I have been doing for near two years - it hit me. That chapter is closed for me now. And my whole world shifted right before my eyes.
