Life is crazy...

As I go about my day and help out one of my son's with his laundry, I find myself thinking just how crazy life is. One moment your children are small and life is chaotic. The next thing you know, life is still chaotic but now your son's jeans are larger than you are. What the heck? I remember well the day this child was born. He was pre-mature and fit in the palm of my hand. Matter of fact, his arm was as small as my thumb! His first clothes were purchased at Toys R Us and were Cabage Patch Doll clothes!! Nothing else fit!

And now??? Holy cow! This boy is now a man and he is a large man! I never, ever imagined it. Actually, I never gave it any thought. At 19, he is 6' and 220 lbs or so! Crazzzzzzzzyyyyyyyyy. Some days I think it's the extra attention he got as a baby. All the extra nurioushment it took to insure his survival. My goodness, what madness in those days! How very litte he was. How much he needed. Then my brain says..."Pssstttt, hey! Remember? MOST of the men on my side are tall, tall, tall! Dad's not exactly short either and I go DUHHHHHHHH!! But still, how did he get SOOOOO big, so quick????

Going back to my chores, I am still and always amazed at life.....and so....back to doing his laundry I go....

As my mind continues to ramble...........

Life is nuts. I now have two boys. 3 years ago I didn't. They grow up so fast, and my oldest is only 2 1/2! Kids are absolutely amazing.

Indeed. Kids are incredibly honest and innocent. By far, the best part of our species if you ask me. I have 3 boys myself and 2 grandsons! Ha! I live in man-land! But hey, I love my men! And raising them certainly has been a blast!

My wife feels the same! 2 little boys and a male cat, not to mention ME! Hehehe.

I wish I could figure out how to make adults act like children, in the good and bad ways -- human interactions would be easier to understand. Don't like what your boss just said? Throw a tantrum. Got a raise? March through the office shouting "Hooray!!!"
