Days gone by

I've been feeling really nostalgic lately, but for what?  I'm not sure.

I've spent many an evening just wandering and clicking the "you might also like" links under my posts, looking back at old ones.

Especially those with my little kiddos in them.  I've been pouring over the pictures of them all when they were so little.  The videos, their little voices, the stories of what they used to do.

Maybe it's because, though I'm not really trying to think about it, our family is heading for some big changes in our near future.

My big boy, that baby of mine just 11 years ago...well, he's changing.  He'll be in middle school next year.  I have vivid (and painful) memories of middle school.  And, that's where he's headed.  

I know every parent feels this, but how does time go by so quickly?  I think the biggest adjustment that I'm struggling with is the letting go.  Letting him be more independent.  But trying to make sure that he's safe.  It scares the shit out of me.   

Couple that with the fact that my tiniest one is getting super excited about big school next year, and I'm overwhelmed.  I don't want to change anything, but I need things to slow down.  I want to be able remember it all.  Every detail.  Over and over.

Speaking of days gone by, these pictures were taken well before the Hong Kong Sevens weekend (before I got my wild streak).  On a rare sunny day, on the rooftop.  

Outfit details: vintage silk blouse and pants come from Stanley Market,  
scarf (from Roomi in Stanley Plaza)...I couldn't resist the colors or the print.

I can't believe it either. It's hard to see them grow up so quickly, I want to cuddle them forever. Love you.
