Five Minute Friday is an exercise in writing. One word prompt over from Kate Montaung and 5 minutes of free writing. No editing, no backtracking just freedom with words.
This week’s prompt is Change.
I’m wondering if it will alway be like this. If change will be the one constant in my days until life is over. Right now it feels like every time I get my feet under me these lovely kids change something again. Whether it’s a new difficult stage or even a new developmental stage that makes them cuter and somehow not babies anymore. I can barely keep up.
I’m constantly chasing them running after them and trying to figure out where they are now. What they are learning, how they are feeling, how to approach each day with them because they seem to change so drastically overnight.
Since they are small their changes keep me on my toes. Keep me guessing. Keep me laughing and in wonder at their beauty, creativity and spunk.
They are treasures and I would not make it stop if even I had the ability to. But sometimes it’s a lot. The constant ups and downs and trying to find my bearings in a new day which always turns into a new world with the little ones.
This is me, just trying to keep up. Trying to change right along with them and also be their steady constant when everything in their world is switched up so regularly.
Moms of more grown children, I’m curious…Does it ever stop? Or at least slow down, or do we just learn to embrace the change a bit better as we grow as parents?
