    Hi Craig, yes our boys are 6'4' and 6'3 and through each stage of their lives they never turn and let you say goodbye to the previous stage from baby to toddler from toddler to boy, boy to teenager and up to man there is no goodbye in between they just seem to change overnight... hang on to the cuddles while you can..but I still do get them thank goodness..

    When young parents reach the point of frustration, this poem is such a reminder to cherish the moments while we can. Lovely thoughts today!

    Love this Craig, speaks to me in EVERY way. Happy St Paddy's to you, thanks for sharing this :D I'll soon be off to clean Verity's preshool--we do this as a family and it reduces our tuition... we only do it every 8 weeks, but it takes about 5 hours, so oye, so much for fun and frolic today, though my girl loves it since she gets to play with the school toys while my hubby and I scrub tables and mop floors... I like that she sees we are helping to care for her school and are involved... hope you and yours are well. Hugs Cyndi
