Playing Catch-up Again!

Here I am again, trying to play catch-up. I am so far behind on my reader it's awful. I have been trying to get around to reading and commenting on everyones blogs but I'm not sure if I am making any progress at all. I have been spending a lot of time being sick and working on my Macaroni Kid stuff. I am loving MacKid, not loving allergies this year! I haven't had them this bad since I was a little and its wearing me out both figuratively and literally. I even started taking Vitamins and I never do that! I know, I know I should always take vitamins but I take so much medicine that I hate taking anything else.. uggh! I've been sitting here all day looking at the calendar. Checking events and dates then it finally donned on me that the kids are almost out of school. Then there's the big birthday coming for the oldest. She'll be 11 in a week and a half. I'm crying, it's awful. I know that they have to grow up, but she's going so fast. I want to slow her down. I want to tell her to wait, enjoy it, take some time, don't be in such a hurry. Before too long she will be out in the "real" world and things will happen before she knows it. I want to hold on just a little tighter but I know that it won't help it will only make her want to go faster. I want to prepare her it won't be long now before boys and broken hearts. I want to tell her to skip it, wait till your 30 there's plenty of time. I know thats not always true, but when your 11 it is. I understand this is the beginning of the end, she is already so grown up and in 2 years she will be a teenager and in 7 she will go off to college. Thats not a long time and I want it to be. I want it to take forever. But for now I will focus on 11 and her birthday and enjoy it while I can.

My oldest will be 11 this summer. On one hand I am sad, but as he grows up he is becoming such a cool person that I am enjoying that alot too. Then again, he is not my baby. I am already weepy at the thought of Turkey turning 3 in September.
