One day they're babies, then they're off to school. Turn around, and they're working at Vibes. :shocked:

Sometimes it feels like forever, but it goes by faster than you'd think.

You can't just start a slow clap any old time. You have to wait for the right moment.

We just wrapped up a garage sale in preparation for the twins heading to college and I ask myself the same question, Ryan. In the early years...late night was the answer...now it's mornings! Without my wonderful wife...nothing would have gotten done. I only cook, do groceries and all home/lawn care. She does everything else (incredibly well I might add). Looking at all the kids' old books, toys, art sets, etc made me notice a bit, how much has gone by in the past 18 years. Never regretted leaving dishes in the sink, but do regret times I was "too busy" to do something with the kids...I sooooo hope we have 1 more Adirondack camping trip left in us as a family! Now the garage sale is over, we might be able to make it happen before they head in different directions on I-87. 3 weeks and counting.

When I think of my folks raising us four kids - all the sports and classes we took after school, the awesome homemade lunches we enjoyed every day - either packed to eat at school when my mom wasn't going to be home, but mostly in the comfort of our kitchen as we usually walked home for lunch - putting all of us thru school, having a family dinner every single night, weekends and summers at the cottage, taking us all out trick-or-treating in costumes that they made for us, etc... etc... all while building and managing their own successful business... Wow, it just blows my mind!

All I can say is that it took teamwork. My folks are an awe-inspiring team. It couldn't have been easy to hold all that down for all those years, but they did it amazingly well.

I am a lucky, lucky grrrl. :heart:
