What Is Coming

My last post was about things that come out of my kids' mouths.

This post is about what has been coming out of mine lately...


I also seem to have developed the habit of sounding like an eighty year old woman.

I say things like, "Eat your green beans or there will be no dessert."


"Be nice to your sister, she is the only one you are ever going to have."

-or, the ever classic response to a whiny three and a half year's old declaration that "I'm hungry..."

"Nice to meet you, Hungry, I'm Mommy!" (Ugh, I hated, hated, hated it when my parents busted that out.)

And, finally, last but not least. . . I must say at least once a day. . .

"Time goes by so much faster these days."

That last one might be trite and oversaid, but it is so true. Time just keeps slipping by these days, the days hurtling past at light speed. Emma is a BIG girl, Will is a BIG boy, and I just shake my head in wonder at how fast this has all happened.

I didn't turn into my mother, but I did turn into my father, which is even scarier.

I am SOOO my mother these days. It's scary.
