Manic Monday - Big

This is my favorite clip art for Manic Monday so far. James and the Giant Peach was one of my favorite books when I was a kid.

The first things that come to mind for me are:

My kids are getting so big. How did we get here? Didn't I just have my son yesterday? Wasn't I just a first time mom a week ago? Now there are 2 and they are getting bigger every day.

In fact my daughter says that to us at least 3 times a week. "I'm getting bigger every day." This line comes right after, "what happened to your baby?" Uggghhh.

Unlike a lot of my girlfriends with kids, I am sooooo not rushing to big boy/big girl thing. I love having babies and would have 2 more if my husband was interested and if I was younger.
Hold your babies tight because they grow out of you a whole lot quicker than we grow out of them!!!!
Happy Monday

    I don't have kids of my own, but watching my little cousins adn my neices and nephews grow up also makes me think, "When did they get so big."

    I tell my closest cousin, now a man, to "Stop growing up, you're making me old!"

    I guess it was colic and the fact that Muncher's a 'spirited' little girl in general, but the infant stage was actually pretty terrible. I don't feel that I'm missing out. I am definitely able to appreciate the great moments...1st smile, laugh, kiss, etc.

    Even still, I'm very much looking forward to when she's old enough that we can actually DO day trips, movies, beach days.

    ENOUGH about ME on YOUR blog! I also can't BELIEVE how BIG your kids are getting!! SO crazy...I remember your little girl sleeping on my KITCHEN COUNTER?!?!?!

  3. Babies do grow way too quickly!

  4. They all grow so fast. I look at my 15-year old Nick and I want him to be 3 again when he thought I was the coolest thing around. Guess that's why I kept having Olivia and Lukie thing I'm the coolest thing around! :)

  5. Good choice for big for you're so right they grower bigger every day. Enjoy!

    Thanks for your comment on mine.

    oh me too. If we would have started having kids in our 20's I would definately have two more. But I'm 34 and he's 37 and now it's just not in the cards.
