“It won’t be like this for long” – I’m sure you’ve heard the song. If you are a mom, I am sure you’ve heard it a million times. Don’t rush things, they won’t be this little forever, they won’t need you forever so take advantage of this time, etc. It’s crazy how fast time goes by. My oldest is 19 and in college. He’s working two jobs so that he can move out soon. Crazy independent. He doesn’t need me anymore. Although…. when he was 2000 miles away at college, he still called me or messaged me every single day. Sometimes I don’t even think my kids LIKE me, but then they show me in little ways that they do. Even now, he comes to me with questions about saving and spending and how to plan his next move.
I know it won’t be like this for long…. so I suck up every moment I can!
Sometimes I wonder what they really think of me. I feel like I’ve done the best that I can, even though I’ve learned a LOT over the past two years. Sometimes I wish I could go back and start parenting all over again so that I could make better decisions. The mistakes I’ve made with my older three kids – I know not to make with my younger two. I hope that I have taught them all to dream bigger and to become more. Over the past two years, we’ve all learned how to dream bigger and how to inspire others. I hope when they view me, they see me as an inspiration and I hope they’ve learned how to be an inspiration to others through me. Every little thing we do matters!
Have you ever wondered how your kids view you?
