My son is turning four in a few days…4 days to be exact. His birthday is March 11th. I am amazed every day at how fast they grow up and how much they soak in. Yesterday I told him, “Honey, you’re only going to be 3 years old for 5 more days!” He simply turned to me and said, “No mommy, I’m only going to be 3 years old for 4 more days. I’ll be 4 years old in 5 more days.”
What? :0 My son was correcting my math skills and he was on the nose?! He is one specific little guy.
I can’t imagine how fast time is going to fly. I left town for a few days, this past weekend, for a girl’s weekend with my sister and best friend. I came back after 4 days, and I swear he’d grown a half inch and was more mature than I remembered. How did that happen in such a short time span? Each night as he sleeps I listen to his steady breathing and thank the Lord that I have this little blessing to raise. I know he’ll be 14 and then 24 before I know it, and it’s such a bittersweet thing.
I look forward to his high school graduation, his first love, his college years, and wedding. I also look forward to just having him today, and hoping he won’t grow up too fast. I don’t think I could handle that.
