N. is now weeks away from 8, E. just turned 16 and A. is 12 1/2. I remember how our days were around the house with just one girl and then how we divided our time between 2 girls...and wow!- how things changed around the house with a boy added to the mix!! I am still adjusting to that boy thing! Just how many years do you get to claim you are in the adjustment period??
You would think I would be good at being with boys since I only have brothers (3) ~much older than I~ and all nephews (6). It took until I was a Great Aunt to have some nieces (and what a rip off, 'cuz they are many states away in Texas and I don't get to play with them).
My girls are not little girls any more. Sometimes I look at them (when they do not know it) and think "Gosh!, when did they change? I see them every day. When did this all happen?"
I have difficulty imagining N. all grown up with broad shoulders and a deep voice and whiskers on his face. I still marvel at my nephews all grown up as men. How could it be...I HAVEN'T GOTTEN OLDER!
