Brooklyn the 7 year old.


Written on 7/29/2008 10:13:00 PM by The Unemployed Dad.

I don't, in my introductions, want to leave out my firstborn girl, Brooklyn. She is a 7 year old girl who is in the 4th grade. You always hear people say how fast they grow up, but it is so true. It's INSANE to think that she will be a teenager soon. Then College, then marriage! I'm literally scared right now. I have to change the subject fast.

Think happy thoughts...think....think about.... oh, who am I kidding...I have to face the fact that my firstborn is growing up. I don't have to be happy about it, or look forward to it, but day by day it approaches.

Well, in the meantime, I can still hold her and she want me to...I can still sing to her and she listen...I can still play with her and she not get bored. I feel sorry for my parents, I was quick to let those things go with them. I hope my kids give me a little longer than I gave mine.

    Yep Yep Yep... They Do "grow up fast" I treasure all the memories I have of mine and "was not" in any hurry to see them go despite me proclaiming to "break their plates and burn their beds" :) I think most of all I miss being asked my advice and special moments with my "grown up kids" maybe they will receive some revelation that "Dad" still needs them... there is still Hope and There is still Time.
