Those are also very fun ages! You can take them just about anywhere and have adventures without strollers and extra diapers and bottles to lug around... and so many kid-friendly places are PERFECT for those ages! It'll be a fun couple of years for you!


Mine will be 8 and 5 at this time next year! Right now we're 7 and 4.

Happy birthdays to your kids! I love eight, for some reason. Maybe because I remember loving being eight. But my eight-year-old just seems so on the edge of childhood to me--still a kid, but so smart and "with it" now too. Outgrowing some of the stuff that made him a difficult little boy at times (super high energy/distractibility) and turning into a really cool big kid. Sniff.

On the other hand, my five-year-old treats us all like village idiots. He's like a preteen girl trapped in a little boy's body. I'm hoping it'll settle down a bit by the time he reaches six.


That is a sweet post. It sounds totally cliche, but wow, time flies and the kids grow up so darn fast. I just realized today that in a couple of months, my oldest is going to be SIX. Can't even believe it!


Happy Birthday to both Jane and Scott. Enjoy the time with your family. :-)


You bring tears to my eyes! While in some ways it's so nice to be at this stage (4 & 8 here) it is hitting home just how fast it really goes). Everyone says that but wow - now we are living it. It's wonderful, sad and amazing all at the same time! Love ya!


Happy birthdays all around!! I love this post. So true, all of it. The slow awakening...


happy birthdays all around and big, big love for you for collectively surviving 13 years of being a mom!
