... a young, naive couple brought home their beautiful newborn son home, and proudly presented him to his grandpa. The grandpa looked down at the tiny little boy and whistfully said,'Just you wait...one day it will seem like you blinked, and he was grown.'
'Ya right...as if...'Both of the new parents thought...And so, a kaleidescope of years began to spin by.
This is one of my favorite early memories of being a mom.It's been playing in my mind a little more lately...now that this little boy has about four inches of height...and thirty pounds on his mom. I guess too, I'm thinking about it today now that Dylan has (temporarily)returned to being dependant on us for all his needs.
Being the parents of a teenager truly did creep up on us. Suddenly, your child is rolling out of bed at noon, and you get to see him for thirty seconds before the phone rings, and he's running out the door to 'hang out'. I guess the only 'good'??? thing about his accident is that we are getting a little more precious time...because once he's healed up he'll be off and running again...
