I was watching my almost 7 year old, as he raced his toy car across all the surfaces in my kitchen. Across the bar, around the sink, and finally as he ramped it off the counter, crashing it onto the floor below.  All of this was completed with glorious sound effects, up to and including an impressive explosion sound when it hit the floor.

It suddenly hit me that my 8 and half year old rarely plays with his cars like that anymore.  If he plays with them at all, it's certainly not with that kind of self-abandon.

So I just sat and enjoyed the almost 7 year old for as long as possible.

They grow up so quickly! I am also trying to savor each moment with my children.

My little fella turns 6 today. How can that be? He's starting to be embarrassed by me. "Mom, stop kissing me!"
