As a mother I am amazed on how quickly time goes by when raising my children. Our house was the house that all the children played at. I couldn’t ask for better neighbors let alone a better best friend. When we moved into the neighborhood we were all the same age and had our children pretty much at the same time. Nick was only 9 months old when he moved in next door and now he is 18 years old and on his way to college! Where did all that time go? Being a photographer I was so tickled they wanted to me to be part of Nick’s senior year…but I don’t think Nick was as thrilled as Cheryl (Nick’s mom) and I were of getting his pictures taken! I do have to say this was probably the fasted photo shoot I have ever been on which is alright because I love this kid and regardless of a real smile or just a smirk he turned into such a handsome young man!
It feels like it was just yesterday mykids were running around totally dependent on me for everything. I remember those days I would wish for quiet time or down time when things would get a little hectic being a single mom…but now I am craving that kind of dependency…I cannot believe my youngest daughter will be hitting the double digits in less than a month, my middle child is in 10th grade and I have a sophomore in college!
