Mothers; No matter how old our children may get, they will always be our "babies'

Today, I had an amazing realization. I used to hate when my Mom or my Mother in Law would call and ask all kinds of questions, or try to tell
us what to do, how we should be behaving or spending ( rather saving)
our money. It used to drive me crazy, back when I was in my 20's,
before I had my own little precious gems.And now I know, now I
understand fully...Now, I also realize I will be 10 times worse! We may
be grown up, having our own babies and we think we know everything, but
we are still their babies. The same way I still feel like I am 20 (and
should look that way too), the same way 10 years pass in the blink of
an eye, is the same way my babies will always be my babies. No matter
how tall, or old, or big they get...I will always see them through
those same rose colored glasses, in those first moments that took my
breath and left me gasping for air.It pains me now, at the ripe old
ages of 2 and 4 to see them coming for independent. I am proud, of
course, but I feel them drifting slowly away from me. I guess that is
how it is suppose to be, that is why the teen years are so trying. If
they weren't we would be crying our eyes out and lying in the floor
like rumpled towels when they left to college (which I am sure, I still
will be...until the transfer, my husband assures me that he sees in our
future:) But instead, they hit puberty, turn completely crazy, and this
helps ease the pain and instead of holding on for dear life when they
leave, we are yelling, "See ya at Thanksgiving, don't let the door hit
ya in the rear:)"But in the end, they are always our children and we
are always their Mothers, no matter the age, distance, or time that has
passed.
