Harrismm, I know what you mean about the kids growing up too fast! Sometimes seems all I did was worry about how hard it was looking after little children then the next thing I looked round and they're all nearly grown.... I do miss them being little and being able to keep them safe with me but at the same time, I absolutely love the relationship I have with them now they're older and we can talk, laugh and have a good time without me having to look after everyone all
Momof4, that's a good plan, and if you make the most of their young years you can move on to the next stage with no regrets. As you say, the more you invest in them now, the happier they're going to be in the future.
Butterfly, hope you had a good time at the fair! You're doing the right thing by going out and facing your fears.
Hi Buddly, Hope, Pear, Sassy, Heather and anyone I've missed.
