75 Year Old Man in a 6 Year Old Body

Oh, my aching, bursting Mommy heart. He's humongous.

He's venturing off each day this next week for five days of Farm Camp - a week of daily adventures with friends. Day camp already. I know it's the refrain of mothers everywhere (and it's too often in my own mouth), but...it's too fast. I grab at the moments, but they're slippery and determined, and they just go. I have to learn that I can't keep them, I can only enjoy them. No matter how much I want to clutch and hoard the moments, the children, the heartbeats of time that I have them near me; I have to open my hands, open my heart, and let them grow and be and go to day camp and stuff.

Easier said than done.
