Happy Birthday, Amy!

Today is my first-born's birthday. Last week, someone asked me about my kids--how many I had and their ages. As I began to list the five of them, I stated that my oldest would be "Oh my word, 25 next week!" Where did the time go? She can't really be 25. That makes me feel so. . .old. It seems like only yesterday I was holding her in my arms, a tiny pink bundle.

Time sure seems to fly once you have kids, doesn't it? Why is that? Do you suppose it's because before they come along we're so focused on ourselves? Or is it just that they keep us busy?

I think it's a bit of both. My husband, who was 45 when our first son was born, says it was at that point he stopped living for himself. And bless his heart, he hasn't stopped running since:-D

Happy Birthday, Amy! You are a joy. Not only are you my daughter, you are my friend. And I love you so very much.

  1. Thanks Mom! Hey if you don't want to feel old just ask Caden how old he thinks you are, he said I looked 13 this morning (well thats a big number to a 5 year old)!

    Love you, Amy

  2. Happy birthday, Amy!! My oldest baby is 18 now. I still can't believe it.

    Mindy, you can be comforted by the fact that you don't look a day over 35. Man, I guess you had Amy when you were 10! ;)

  4. See, Mindy, I was thinking you weren't a day older than 29. That would make you a mother at 4! Why you must be a miracle. And of course you are agreeing to this!

    Happy Birthday Amy! My daughter is 3 and turned 3 on the 13th of March. Hope you had a great day!

  5. Oh, Christy! I didn't know she just had a b-day. How fun. Tell her happy birthday from me! (like she'd remember me! LOL)

  6. My oldest is 23. Graduating from college and getting married this year. We are all busy with things, huh!
    Happy birthday to all these March children. My mom's b-day was March 1 and my step-mom's b-day was March 11.
