It is weird because the topics have changed. Conversations are sometimes more serious. There is more self-expression, protest about which clothes they will wear, and more 'tude. They want independence and are embracing responsibility. There is a different sense of humor.
I have to say...I like it. It has been fun to watch their personalities form...I know this is just the beginning.
I adore them...cherish my family. I am counting my blessings each day.
I hope to be there as they continue to transform. To give them boundaries, yet grant them the freedom they need. I hope to teach them to fly so when the time is right, they are ready. I will always be there.
I got the new Destinations collection from Lily Bee and had to use it for a non-travel page. I love the You are Here tag...and the whole page was driven by the Go See Do circle tag. I want them to Go, See and Do. Then I want them to come back and tell me all about it! Every now and then, I would love an invite to tag along.
I think being here for this transition, this shift and the many more to come is crucial...it is my life's purpose. Our family of four will continue to hold tight, protest each other, cry when we hurt each other's feelings and laugh. We will grow together.
Makes me happy to be right where I am.
