Looking Up To My Kids.. Literally!August 9th, 2012 at 10:36 am by Patrece Dayton under Patrece’s Perspective, WTHI Blog
I got a strange feeling today. I took my two boys to the pediatrician for their annual physical and they are both officially taller than Mom. I know that’s not a big deal in comparison to lots of other things, but it was a big deal to me. My oldest son (age 16) has been taller than both Mom and Dad for a while, but now my 13 year old son is taller than I am.
He, of course, was very excited. I, on the other hand, was kind of melancholy. It really does seem like yesterday when they were both little. Wise people used to tell me “cherish the time because it goes fast!” I guess I didn’t really believe them until I lived through it.
So, as some of you might roll your eyes at my sappy little experience today, others might agree that time truly does go fast and that we should, infact, cherish them when they are little. I’m really enjoying the teenage times and wouldn’t trade anything. I guess I will just have to suck it up and realize I am the short one in the family now! lol
