TODAY YOU GREW
Tuesday is a kid free day around here. In the morning we drop the little ones off to their various locations and enjoy working in silence.
Last Tuesday my kids arrived home taller, smarter and even more beautiful than they were when I dropped them off. Open faces, bright eyes, glossy hair and the occasional dry booger at the nape of their noses.
Just like that they had grown up a bit - right before my very eyes.
How does that happen? They literally grow whilst we're away… or while they sleep?!
It's one of the many miracles of parenthood. To watch our children take deeps breaths of slumber only to have them rise with a new face. Constantly changing, constantly growing.
For all the trials and exhaustions of parenting, it's these little things that cause me to stop and take notice. The days are rolling on, years are piling up and my kids are getting older. They need me less which frees me up to adore them more.
Big fat juicy blessing, right there.
