It started with me being alone last night. I dropped Austin off at a meeting & Frankie was out doing "guy" stuff and I was roaming the house...Yes...I roam my house and I wound up in Austin's room. Wandering...
...amongst the mountain of books and model planes.
...all my memories and trying to keep as much of that little boy as I can without sounding freakish!
Somedays are a little harder than others. Some days I feel guilty pleasure thinking about all the fun Frankie and I will have once the last of our flock flies off. I mean, this IS what you work towards as a parent. You just never really think when you bring that baby bundle home how fast that day gets here. I know it's nearing for us...it's around the corner.
I know with only 2 weeks before school starts the days will be hurried...I'll be trying to grind them to a halt...knowing full well it's a lost cause. So, I will roam...remember...and preserve
each and every moment.
