#1 always manages to get Kate to pose for her. They spent a carefree evening at the playground together.
“If I can’t see you, you can’t see me too!”
This precocious child became a part of our large family a short 3 years ago, but it’s hard to imagine life without her.
When they are young and needy, we can’t wait to have our peace and wish they would play alone instead of bugging us all the time.
All too soon, they morph into sullen teenagers and want their space. The tables are turned and now it’s us trying to inch our way into their lives.
The strangest thing is, we never see the transition coming.
|My eldest & my youngest|
I’m glad that I have the teenagers to remind me how precious everything about Kate is, and how fleeting the moments are.
And I’m thankful to have Kate to bring out the best in the older kids, in nurturing and caring for her.
