Going through old pictures of my kids always tugs my heart and makes me miss when they were little so much. They are teens now, and it all seemed to go so fast. So, I flip through my photos and miss the past….until…
I come across a picture like the one below. I forget how tiring how having three kids under the age of five is. How I could fall asleep anytime, anywhere.
My heart still feels sad that time moves so quickly and my boys grow so fast, but three years later, I can appreciate not feeling so tired all the time. And it is fun to watch my kids grow and see how their personalities have shaped and grown with them.
But still…I need the reality-check type of pictures!
