1. Throwback Thursday: Choose a photo from a previous June and write a poem or a blog post.

Time Flies…

In those brown eyes

Time Flies…

Running into my arms when she cries

Time Flies..

Throwing away the baby dolls her grandmother buys

Time Flies…

I remember her non stop questions, all the who’s? What’s? Why’s?

Time Flies…

Your becoming a teen soon, with your tiny white lies

Time Flies….

You’ve gotten quite bright, like the orange wings of monarch butterflies

Time Flies…

      Thank you for stopping by! It is definitely hard seeing our little girls grow into young women but it’s inevitable. All we can do is stand by them as they go through the rough patch of teenagerdom. By the way, I played with dolls until I turned 16. I knew it was time to give it up when I started getting embarrassed about telling my friends about the new dolls I got for Christmas or my birthday.

    It most certainly does! It’s good to remember on the days of seemingly never ending parenting stress.

  6. I think there’s a touching song from Fiddler On the Roof about children growing up called, “Turn Around” that this reminds me of.

    How time flies indeed! I remember when the kids were young, I was in denial that they will be teens soon. I was afraid.

    All the best for you!
