Ok...so they are still only 4 and 8. Compared to how small they were originally though....heheheh
They got bikes from Santa this year. Watching my oldest ride off by himself...watching the freedom he experienced, the joy of being big and doing something on his own- it was fantastic! I beamed for them both with pride and a teeny, tiny dose of sadness as they grew up just a bit more that first day riding. I guess this is what it is to watch your kids grow up? I am very proud of them both- of the little people that they are growing into. I just wish those "stay little pills" my Nana used to talk about were real!
Happy 2013 everyone! Enjoy each day...because as Ferris Bueller says, "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."
