Where are the brakes?
10pm and the sudden realisation that the day has gone and I almost missed a day of blogging!
Where did the day go?
Where are the weeks going?
Did someone say it was half term this Friday?! I thought I had another week! Eek!!!
Time is just racing by… I am hurtling along in a roller coaster, flying round and round…. Never really slowing as I go through the start gates… or are they the end gates?
Any one else feel like that?
Tom is nearly 8, Willy already 6… if the time continues to speed up like it is currently, accelerating every year to go past faster… will we soon enter Warp Speed? Will I wake up one morning, the boys taller than Daddy, leaving home to go to Uni, live in London?
Tonight I will hold them closer, snuffle their faces for longer, linger longer to hug them while they sleep…
Soon they will have left the house and the noise and the clutter, the grassy boots flung by the door, the left up toilet seats, clothes in heaps, discarded book bags, laughter and giggles, the occasional thud, little elephant feet running along the landing and long, heart felt cuddles, hot cheeks against mine… will all be but a distant memory… and there will be quiet.
And how I will miss them.
Where are the brakes? Can you slow the hours? The minutes?
I am going to take one… and live in the moment and appreciate the delicious, delightful chaos that is my life.
