Life Simplified...#TBT

Thought I'd share a little 'Throwback Thursday' for today...
this is a photo of my eldest son and me, taken at his 1st birthday party in August of 1999.

I still have a hard time believing he is now officially an adult...
seems like just yesterday that we brought him home from the hospital.
As I've said before, when I first had children, other moms would tell me that I should enjoy the time with them while they are little, because before I knew it, they would be all grown up. You know what? Those moms were right...time really DOES pass by so quickly! It may not seem that way when you are sleep deprived and overwhelmed caring for a new little person, kissing the scraped knee of one just learning to walk, keeping little hands out of everything they aren't supposed to be touching, and even dealing with temper tantrums at times, but trust me - those days will be gone before you know it. Please try your best to enjoy every will not regret it! :)


  1. Aw, what a cutie! I know what you mean about the time passing. It's yet another thing my mom was right about. Thanks for sharing the photo. You're gorgeous!

    1. Thank you SunnyDay! He has now turned into a very handsome young man, but oh how I would love to go back to the days when he was this small. I sure do miss them! Thank you for the compliment and kind words to me, as well. Time has definitely taken its toll on me, but my hope and goal is to not let it bother me so much anymore, and learn to allow myself to age 'gracefully' instead. 😊
