Look at me….I’m premium.  Grade A, premium. LOL  I wish I could remember why I decided suddenly to upgrade my Xanga.  I know I had a reason, but I can’t remember what it was.

I have nothing to say!  It’s been a long week.  Halloween saw 30 kids come to my door and it wasn’t very exciting.  Though I did enjoy my time hanging out with my son. 

Someone who has a Xanga that I enjoy reading was talking about his son growing up and missing the little boy that he use to be, and it reminded me of something.  A wise person told me when my first born was a tiny little tot that after you have a child ever stage that they go through is so cool that you think wow, I want to keep them just like this.  So they’re first born, and they’re tiny and perfect and beautiful sleeping bundles and you look at them and think it just can’t be any better.

Then they start interacting with you and making eye contact and Gasp! smiling & laughing and you think, oh no, I was wrong, THIS is the perfect age, I wish I could keep them just like this.

Then they start walking and talking and discovering their world.  They see new things every day and I swear you can watch their intellect grow and once again you think, Wow, I was wrong!  This is the perfect age. 

Well, you get the idea.  Enjoy every little stage, but I can tell you with absolute certainty that now that my kids are 18 & 20 and they are adults (mostly) and I can talk to them as contemporaries but still giggle and play this is the perfect age.  Absolutely wonderful.  I couldn’t possibly love them or appreciate them any more than I do now.

I wonder what it will be like when they’re living on their own and having my grandchildren?
