Happy Birthday

Ahhhh, 12, that strange age... not quite a teen, and yet no longer a "little kid". By dear Sagan turns 12 today. He has been looking forward to this year for awhile... because NEXT year he will be officially a teenager.
So strange, that rush to grow up when you are young. So much in a hurry to reach that next year, to be older, feel more in control of your own life, no longer tied down to parental rules. And yet, now that I am grown, what I wouldn't give to be younger again, and slow it all down and have time to just play and not worry about so many things all the time.
My hope for my dear boy who is in such a hurry to grow up, is a slow, lazy, fun year of discovery, adventures, dirt, bike rides, movie watching, hanging out at the park, pancake breakfasts on Sundays, "bro time" with Logan in the evenings, and still being cuddled occasionally by your mama.
Happy Birthday Sagan.

" I wish I knew what I know now when I was youger" popped into my head as I was reading your post.
It's so hard to make our babies understand that they need to just take this life slow, enjoying eac moment.
Happy birthday to your young man Sagan.

My eldest will be 12 on Thursday and it's going to be an adventure (I'm preparing myself). Happy birthday, Sagan!

happy birthday!! When you are young you want time to speed up and when you're older you want it to slow down.
