Scrapbook Page Idea

When I was a young mother, I remember moms with grown or almost grown children saying to me, "Rebecca, you need to enjoy these days because they go so fast." I believed them to an extent but there were those days when I was trying to get dinner going, feed a baby, keep an eye on an active toddler, and help others with homework that made me wonder if those days were truly going to end. Sometimes they were long, tiring, rewarding, fun, exhausting, sleepless days!!
And here I sit, just a few days from my youngest baby turning 14 and I wonder where the time has gone and sometimes wishing I had a rewind button so I could go least for some of the good stuff.

So I've had this idea for a scrapbook page using the lyrics to the song, "You're Gonna Miss This" by Trace Adkins.

"You're gonna miss this, you're gonna want this back. You're gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fast. These are some good times so take a good look around. You may not know it now but you're gonna miss this."

Hopefully I haven't left you with the impression that I am not enjoying these days with my kids, I totally am!! They have turned into some really cool people that on some levels I feel like I'm just getting to know.

I miss those days too, but you are right they are really enjoyable to be with. I love being with them and YOU too.
Love, Mom
