So this past week I have been thinking a lot of my babies.  Well they really are no longer babies ( to me they will always be).  They have birthdays all a week apart from each other 17th, 24th, and 30th.  And every birthday I start the morning off by telling them their birth story.  I know, how corny is that? Plus I love to add a little more excitement to the story each year...lolol.  I think this is a little weird.  My oldest daughter come into this world weighing 7lbs 4oz and 20 inch long at 9:52 A.M.  My son, my middle child came into this world weighing 7lbs 4oz and 20inch long at 9:52 P.M.  What are the odds?

I am amazed how as a mother I can still remember every exact detail of my labor and delivery.  But yet I can not remember stuff from a month ago..LOL.  Do any of you agree?  There is no greater love then that of my children.  The ones who can bring out countless emotions in you, in a matter of seconds...LOL.  Now you know that is true ladies :).  Proud, Love, Happiness, Anger, Sadness, Excitement so on.  Honestly, why must they learn things the hard way?  Why can't they just do as I say and believe me when I say do it this way because your way is not going to work.   I know its a fact of life that we must learn it our own way.  Geesh!! It sure is not easy watching them go through life and spread their wings.  Although it is a good feeling when they figure out life without your help and are successful.  My three always listen to what advice we give them and actually hear us out.  And sometime and I do mean sometimes they actually took some of our witty advice and used it.  Which is amazing in its self.  For the most part it always seems that all the advice is going in the left ear and coming right out of the right ear LOL.

Now maybe I am crazy.  Or maybe one of you can relate to this.  I don't have a problem becoming a Empty Nester.  I actually look forward to it.  But what I do have a hard time adjusting to is that feeling where your children just don't need you anymore.  I know! I know! that they will always need me.  Just not in the way that they use to.  You know that way when YOU were their wold.  Not their husband, girlfriend, boyfriend or friends.  I know!! I am CRAZY huh?   I want those days back :), when Marissa's love showed through those beautiful brown sparkling eyes.  When Zachery was gonna marry me and live with me forever and do daycare.  When Brisa was so shy she held on to my legs and arms everywhere we went.  NOW THOSE WERE THE DAYS!!  The good thing is I raised some pretty amazing little people into amazing young adults.
