Changing my wishes....

Somedays when I'm going nuts, or when we need to go somewhere and we have to pack up ALL of th ekids just to run into town, I think, "I can't wait til they are old enough that I can just leave them here alone!"....Um, I'm totally taking that back. I HATE that they are about there. I love that they need me, and that they actually want me around. Where have the last 8 years gone?!!!!!!
I freaked out yesterday as I watched Jaden in the grocery store pushing pearce around in the cart, and his jeans were too short for him, but they looked so tall. He's in the 3rd grade!!!!! What the heck?!
And Kam, I never really notice how much she's grown until I watch her sleep (which I do a lot lately) or until I look back at old pictures of her when she was 2 and 3....
Or jaden when he was 4 or 5....
They're so awesome. Seriously the coolest kids. I really want time to slow down. I can't wait to help them with prom and sports and then wedding,c ollege, and missions, but I am LOVING this time in t heir lives. LOVING IT! I love that they cuddle, want to make cookies with me, read books to them, come see what weird thing they invented and still help them pick out their clothes ocassionally. I LOVE IT! LOVE LOVE LOVE MY KIDS!!!!!
