My children are growing up at a crazy pace! While I’ve been wrapping up details for Mimi and Andrew’s wedding, Eby lost his first two teeth, Sweet Pea started her third year of med school, and Little Man learned to jump off the side of the pool. The middle seven are working full-time or part-time, taking swimming lessons, reading books, and doing the things kids do in the summer.
It’s an unbelievable mental stretch some days. I go from warming milk in sippy cups for bedtime, to talking over the challenges of getting to know new roommates.
I love it all — and I am stretched by it.
As my friend Signe says, “So many needs, so little Mom.”
In wedding news — only eight more days! Seven of us got haircuts today, the front porch got one last coat of paint, tux rentals were confirmed, and I’m working on a schedule for the next week. It feels a little unbelievable, but Mimi and Andrew seem to look happier every day.
Thank you for sharing my life.
