My Asher is six today and I am sitting here wondering how fast the next six years are going to go. Wasn't it just yesterday that we were bringing him home from the hospital, but at the same time, thank goodness it's not. The quandary of loving those babies, being ok that everyone is getting more independent, but wishing for just certain moments to be relived, the pause button, some way to rewind once in a while. Do you ever feel that way?
He started Kindergarten this year and I miss him. Sloan and I visit school often to have lunch with him and Sloan leaves every time crying for "his Asher". I feel the same way. I wouldn't mind just scooping him up and taking him back home. "We'll be back when I'm a little more ready to give him up." I'd say to the Principle. But, you can't stop progress, and Asher is ready to spread his wings.
Yep, this picture makes me swallow hard
And four makes it a little bit more of a family.
