I had to pack up some of the clothes from the kids. It is an emotional experience. I am enjoying watching them grow. Learn new things, experience things that are fun and challenging. I could do with out the fun of the whining and needy stages that seem to dominate toddlerhood. However with an approaching sad- depressing- and unhappy anniversary my emotions are already running high- coupled with leaving behind babyhood and little kid hood I can be a bit of emotional basket case.
Probably I will not have more children. And leaving behind the snuggling baby time and rocking is kind of sad well very sad.
I will enjoy this time for what it is. I need to learn to do that. To live in the moment to experience things as the kids do. To love to learn to embrace and enjoy.
