You're Gonna Miss This... Moment, Playtime at Home

I am going to miss the sound of my kids giggling and enjoying themselves with friends under my roof. There will come a time when hanging out at home won't be cool. Sword fighting and my little ponies will be a thing of the past. This is a moment I love and don't ever want o give up.

What are little boys made of?
Snips and snails, and puppy-dogs' tails,
That's what little boys are made of.

What are little girls made of?
Sugar and spice, and everything nice,
That's what little girls are made of.

You're Gonna Miss This

au revoir, adieu, ciao, till next time...

Awww, now don't start making cry! LOL! I don't ever want them to grow up! I will miss that too! It's so quiet when the kids are gone {I'm not complaining too much!} but will miss that laughter and giggling too! Thanks for sharing!

Those are great pictures, and I'm sure I'll miss those moments too, but right now I just wish parents would realize that it would be nice if they invited the kids to play there once in a while. ;-)

Yea, so many things we're gonna miss when our kids grow up!

Beautiful photos accompanied by one of my favorite songs.
Today is definitely one of those days. My son graduates from Kindergarten today (see blog) and my daughter turns 16 next month.
Oh where has the time gone!

Wishing you a scent-sational day!
