A new stage in motherhood...

I've been such a lousy blogger lately and feel like I have so much to write about... Crazy enough, it's not because of lack of inspiration but rather lack of time that I have been missing from the blogger world... but here I am...with my mind overflowing with ideas, thoughts, stories, etc...Life has just been...well... crazy!.. which brings me to my post.. a new stage in motherhood...

It's all weird and exciting at the same time; my life has changed so much... Now that my kids are older and more mature (or so I think) everything is just so different...Sometimes I feel empty when I realize that the stage in which I had to watch every single move they made or help them with anything they had to do, has definitely passed...Not that my kids don't need me anymore, because I know they always will (or at least I hope they will)...but they're definitely much more independent now..
I'm way out of the diapers, pacifier and crazy tantrums stage...I'm way past the time when conversations about pregnancy, epidurals and and labor where somewhat entertaining and interesting.....
I have officially entered the stage where my main concerns revolve around what schools my kids will go to, or what kind of friends they will have... I have started to think about how to teach my kids about God and going to church every Sunday.. I find myself researching what kind of sports the girls would be good at or what kind of activity I can start them in...I never thought I'd get here.. but I did. I closed my eyes for a second and changed from being a mom of babies to being a mom of KIDS.. Kids whose needs are real and their demands are even more real..
It's amazing to see how fast time flies.. how life changes in a matter of seconds... To think that 5 years ago I wasn't even a mom yet and today my kids are my one and only purpose in life really amazes me...
I have learned so much during this journey called motherhood and cannot wait to see what's in store in this new stage...
This isn't the life I picture... this is MUCH better...
Let this new stage begin!
