A friend of mine asked me if I now "mourn and cry" on my kids' birthdays for the passing of time, and confessed to me that she has cried on every one of her childrens' birthdays since the oldest one turned ten. This seems a little wacky to me. I actually think it's quite fantastic that my kids are growing up. They are such AMAZING people and I totally enjoy hanging out with them! Grace is always available to text me
fashion or decorating advice when I need it, and now that she is 'away' at college, she will have lunch or coffee out with me whenever I want. And Jason is just hilarious and keeps me chuckling all the time (I will actually miss driving him and his friends around and listening to their conversations.) It is so fun to have kids who grow up to be people you actually like!
