Whenever my kids reach a new milestone, I always start thinking about the related milestone that will happen later on. Like when T-Man first took off riding his bike around the corner without me holding on or even being able to see him--I was proud as punch but my mind's eye flicked ahead to the first time he will pull the car out of the driveway, new license in hand, and drive away on his first solo adventure. That little bike ride is a major step for him and is a preparation for the future for me. We both grow a little in that moment.
P.S. Miss B starts preschool in a few weeks; then I will have a few hours to myself. I wonder what that will be like?!?
P.P.S. I would guess that by next week, I will be relishing the time that I have to get things done while the kids are at school...and enjoying the time that I have with them as much as ever.
