So do your own F-F-T about whatever is on your mind

This Daddy's Blog

Todays Friday's Final Thoughts are about getting older.  Not just me but my kids.  I will be 38 in July (shit I am old) and all I can think about is that my kids are growing up so much so fast.  C2 is having his 5th birthday party this weekend and his actual birthday is next Tuesday but as I look back at T's blog
 My Crazy 4 and scroll through old pic's of him,  all I can do is close my eye's and wonder

Where has all the time gone?

I can remember when he was just a little tan baby boy.  Born a day before T's birthday and he had his Mommy's dark skin and dark eyes.  Looked nothing like his big brother C1 or his daddy.  Never knew that we would have 2 more C's, T and I were so in love with our little boys.

And now as he turns 5, he still makes me smile and want to cry when he hugs me and ask's for Daddy time and has me tuck him in.

I think one of my favorite things is when he gets up early as I am leaving for work, he will stare out the window at me or he will come running out of the house in his underwear just to tell me bye, I love you and give me a hug.

Sometimes I felt like getting older would suck because I wouldn't be able to run as fast, hit that 3 point shot like I used to, and do all the things I used to do as a young adult

but I realized getting older sucks because it means my C's are getting older right along with me.

Now excuse me as I am late for an appointment to go pick up my walker from the doctor.

You almost made me cry! I am right there with you, watching my youngest as he inches closer and closer to my height (which isn't tall, but still!) every day. Suddenly, he's almost a teenager and I'm pretty sure it was only a week ago that he was in preschool...

It's the kids getting older that keeps some having baby after baby. The thought has crossed my mind more than once lately...but I am pretty sure we're done. But I look at Colton, and he is already 19 months. Still my baby, but not really a baby anymore. Sad.

This was a really sweet post, Scott. Probably not the words you'd choose, but it was all the same.

Awww, you're such a good daddy! It's so scary when you realize how fast your kids age! It's a good thing that I'm not getting any older after this year's bday!

The Mcklinky thing is fairly easy. Just go to the site, create an account, do a Basic List linky. Name it and give it dates and then it'll give you html to put at the bottom of your post. Easy Peasy.

This is so sweet! I can so relate to this. Sometimes I am excited at how fast my kids are growing and sometimes it really makes me sad. I guess it helps us appreciate each moment. Amen to the getting old thing. I'm a bit behind you, but I feel it.
