My Little One is Ten

My youngest turned 10 today. No longer, and never again, will I have kids in the single digits. All I can think of today is this song. Truly, your kids just turn from babies to kids to grownups in the wink of an eye. It flies too fast. I want one more day where they wear onesies and I rock them to sleep. One more day of picture books. One more day of baby wash scented toddlers in footie pj's. One more day of tiny little swimsuits and a wading pool.

This rendition ends as a cheesy Kodak commercial, sorry about that.

I know how this feels. With the girls(ah yes we have those twins) I was eager for them to grow, to do, to explore. With Nick, my baby, I want him to stay small, to stay my little guy. I'm so happy he still like to snuggle and hug me. I know those days are numbered.
I love the fun look back at the old commercials, and that Kodak Instamatic Camera, I had one!!!Happy Birthday to the Little One!!

I know I'm not the first to say "they grow so fast." I was flashing back to the single digit days of my the Alzheimer's hasn't kicked in yet. Love the old commercial - song and all.

**Love the card up in the corner. LOL

And it gets so complicated as they get older. But yeah, those days when they were little are sweet.

I know what you mean too- my youngest will be 8 this summer although, she recently told me she's going to be "Mommy's little Pumpkin" again. But she's big and squirmy and full of opinions...she does still let me read to her every night so I've got that going for me.

Happy birthday to your baby! Who isn't such a baby any more. I know how it feels. Garbo turned 10 in January.

Argh, it's so hard to be a parent! You want them to grow and get easier and at the same time you can't stand for them to grow! When I read that part about you wanting them to wear onesies one more time I just about lost it, because Genevieve shunned the onesies prematurely, deciding around her 2nd b-day, if not before, that onesies were only for tiny babies, not for her. I felt cheated!

happy birthday to your baby! I hear you, but there is something kind of nice, watching them turn into amazing people too.

In a year, my daughter will be a legal adult, and I'm worried I haven't taught her enough to do everything on her own yet.
