But with Julia, I want her to SLOW DOWN! Being an older and hopefully wiser mom than I was before, many things are so much more fun. I'm more relaxed and I don't take anything for granted. I go to bed at night just thankful that I've gotten to have Julia for this long. I realize what a gift she is and how blessed I am to have her.
When Elena says: "When Julia's 10, I'll be 20!", I cover my ears and ask her never to remind me of that ever again! Please slow down, kids! I'm enjoying you all so much!
