If I Only Knew
... cross posted from our sister site, NJ Moms Blog.
Summer is winding down, and so too is the last weeks of summer camp for my son. But this year is different, because this summer is the last summer of my son being a little boy.
He starts Kindergarten next month. My baby is a big boy now.
As a mother, we all know how fast time accelerates. One day we are knee-deep in diapers, praying for the day potty training is behind us. Or we wonder if our babies will EVER give up that sippy cup or their treasured blanket. We clap with glee when they transition to a big boy/big girl bed. We marvel when they dress themselves (alone) for the first time.
And in an instant a young boy or girl emerges. With personality and independence, they start to make their way on their own.
