I know one thing for sure, I am NOT cut out to be the Mom of a 20 and 18 year old! It hit me last night as I realized I had texted Matty 7 different times trying in vain to get him to text or call back! !!! Now - I know that logic tells me Matty is an 18 year old young man, but somewhere between the connection to my head and my heart things get mis-wired!...Matty did tell me when he left that I could call him-but ONLY 2 times a day!!
I just cant wrap my head around the idea that they are men and not boys and that all this time has flown by. I would take back any moment that I didnt take to cuddle them and enjoy their company. Sure, there are times I thought "oh my God will they ever LEAVE"!! But that was only for a second ( or two)!
What I am trying to say is these days pass so quickly. I know it sounds like a corny phrase but its not. One day, like me, you will wake up and find that your "babies" dont need you like they used to! Enjoy every second of the screaming and crying temper tantrums - believe it or not, someday you will miss them!!
Thank GOD I get my daily fix f love from my daycare kids! Lindsay just got done putting something pretend from a plastic coffee cup onto my cheeks and then hugged me! I am not sure exactly what she was doing but she in some way thought she was taking care of me! Thanks Lindsay, thats just what I needed!!
