As I was wasting time on the computer today, I came across a blog of a friend of a friend of a friend. AKA total stranger! (I'm sure I'm not the only one who does this, right?) Well, this stranger whom I now know a lot about had 4 kids, thought she was done, got pregnant again....sound familiar? Anyway, she had posted an awesome poem about how kids grow up so fast and how we will miss all the things they do. (Yes, I have heard this a million times) But this one hit me a little harder than others and I started thinking about my own kids. They are growing up faster than I ever thought possible! Hailey in particular. I never take the time to tell her how great she is....how beautiful she is....how much I appreciate her! I've got to do better, I thought to myself! I will do better!
In the middle of my blog-stalking, Hailey had asked if she could make cookies, which she does often. Sure, just don't forget the sugar and crisco this time! I tasted the dough and it was delicious! I ate way too much! The cookies turned out great. Then she decided to take a bath......then I smelled smoke!!
Whoops! She forgot she had a batch of cookies still in the oven when she decided to take that bath! I'll admit I freaked out a little....but then tried to go back to the blog of the total stranger and remember that these are the things I will miss some day!
