Stolen moments....

My son is almost 7, yes I said 7! Can you believe that?? Cause I certainly can't. Now because he is in school/bus 8 hrs of the day... and he has to go to bed fairly earlier, cause he is exhausted after a long day at school. (vicious cycle) We don't get a lot of time together to hang out and chat/connect.
Well over the last few nights. He has been asking me to lay with him for 5 mins when he goes to bed. I can't help but say yes... It gives us our cuddle time, and we get to have a quick chat about the day. I mean really... how many more nights of this will I have. Boys don't need their moms after so long. (sadly)
After all he still lets me hug him, and kiss him! (even in public) I'm going to miss my little man.. He is growing up far to fast for my liking... so for now, I am so happy to have those stolen moments!

That's sweet. Tara slept we me for a long time... and as much as some nights I wanted a bed to myself (never happens anyway, there is always some combination of pets in the bed!), I also miss those times when we would lay and chat. I used a cold night as an excuse last week to have her sleep with me. We went to bed earlier and watched TV and chatted!

LOL my little bugger is growing up so fast! Logan now goes to bed without even saying goodnight. But there are still times during the day that he comes up to me and gives me a hug and a kiss. That's the thing with us... we have always shown our kids that it is ok to express themselves and show love openly. That makes such a huge difference. Cherish this time with him as they get older you begin to slowly see the changes and start to miss those little things.

Hold him close as long as you can because they certainly are "stolen moments." They grow up so fast it's so sad at times.

So sweet! These moments will pass by too quickly so enjoy them! It is definitely sad how fast our little ones grow up.
