Don’t you just hate it when your kids grow up?

When I was a young mother I never thought that one day I’d long to hear the squabbles of two little girls down the hall. I never knew I’d close my eyes some day and try with all my might to recall the smell of my sweet little babies after a bath. I never knew I’d ache one day to feel them once again snuggled in my lap ready for a story. I never knew that one day my house would be so silent.

Well, I once longed for them, and then I got them back in the form of grandchildren! Maybe you will too.

I gave up on that awhile back. My daughters are now 38 years old and neither of them have children or plan to have any.
