Stop the Clock!!
He is sick with a cold right now that has left the other three of us feeling droopy and lethargic, has it slowed him down? Nope. Do I mind? Nope. Does he ever stop smiling or trying to make me laugh. Nope!
There are 54 minutes left before he turns 11 and I don't know where the time has gone. Everyone says that. All parents feel that, but I really, really don't know how it could have gone so fast. The boys love to freak me out and tell me how many years they have left until they are grown and moving away, like they will be leaving by the end of their 18th birthdays. Cake, presents, out the door? I sure hope not. I can hardly stand the thought of it. I will be the worst empty-nester there ever was.
So as the clock ticks away and I am struggling to keep from waking the little guy up so I can hold him while it turns into tomorrow, I wish I could turn the clock back or take a hammer to it, giving me more time.
