Mommy Monday~ It Goes By So Fast

My son had his birthday a couple of weeks ago- his 3rd birthday. He's already 3! He's growing up way too fast and I can't keep up and I want time to slow down.  I want to enjoy spending time with him at home, but I'm already looking into preschools and thinking about what school to send him for Kindergarten. I kid you not, I tear up when I pass by preschools and think about having to spend several hours away from him.  Yes, I may sound crazy, but I know many of you moms out there had the same sort of "panic attack" at the thought of sending your firstborn off into someone else's care.  It's hard for me because I've been next to him, with him, beside him since he was born.  Sigh.

I think seeing my kids grow up so fast is why I'm not looking forward to 30.  Yes, I hear people say 30s are better than your 20s or you're more confident in your 30s.  That's not my problem.  It's not a matter of being more wise or being more confident for me, because I'm already extremely wise and confident (I kid).  I just get sad thinking that as I get older, so do my kids.  And yes, the changing body/metabolism doesn't help, but it's more of wondering where the time went.  It's true- time flies as you get older.

Anyhow, enough of the sappiness.  Here are some pictures from his 3rd birthday.  He's turning into a big boy.   I can't believe how much I love this kid.  He's really become outgoing and loud and there's not a day that goes by where my husband and I don't laugh hysterically at his antics. 

He started the day off with a playdate and then we had a ghetto fabulous birthday dinner at Incredible Johns (a glorified Chuck E. Cheese) with our closest family friends.  I apologize for my daughter half flashing the camera.  My fault.

We were fortunate enough to spend some time with my family up in Norcal right before Jonah's birthday.  This was cake 1 of 3.  I love how he's so enthusiastic about blowing out his candles!

Just love these guys.  Funny that they have the same expression here.

Perfect illustration of my point, no? It's all a blur, life passes you by, etc. 

Happy birthday my son.  I love you so so so much!
