I didn't know that mothers go through a type of growing pains. My once cuddly kids are turning into older kids who sometimes want to push Mama away. It seems like just yesterday when I was the center of their world. I know that they need to break away, but I'm starting to feel sad about it. We'll just keep growing together so that we never grow apart.
At least, my little Jillian still grabs my hand and says, "Mama, you're my very best friend." Now I did it. I think I'm going to cry :) My Mama emotions are all over the place.
I better go. My nephew needs a hug. So do I.
