It Goes By Way Too Fast

My son is 6 and it seems like yesterday he was a newborn.


I couldn't wait for him to smile at me without the nurses saying "it's just gas".

I couldn't wait for him to say Mama, even though his first word was "GAK".

I couldn't wait for him to crawl and then he walked at 9 months.

I couldn't wait for him to eat solid food, and my kitchen was a mess for 3 years.

I couldn't wait for him to be potty trained, and now he leaves the seat up and pees on the floor.

I couldn't wait for him to know God, Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and then he said "If God is real, why can't I see him?"

I couldn't wait for him to sleep in a big boy bed, and now he demands 800 count cotton sheets.

I couldn't wait for him to start school, and when he did I cried the whole day.

I couldn't wait for him to ride a bike, and I was amazed when he got a wrench and took the training wheels off all by himself.

This journey goes by much too fast. Today I waited, watched, hugged, kissed and smiled. He's my beautiful, beautiful boy.
