Monday...And It's All About My Jack!!!

Happy Monday Ladies!  And just like that, I blinked my eyes and the weekend was over!
Not quite sure how this happened so quickly, but I have another sweet Jack turned 13 on March 1!

If you know me, then you have heard me say on numerous occasions that Jack is pretty much the perfect child and every parent should have one just like him.  From the very second this sweet boy was born he has been perfect.  As a baby, he was perfect, he slept through the night right away, took nice long naps, and was always always happy!  As he has gotten older, he has continued to be the same exact way.  In 13 years I don't think I have ever had to raise my voice once to him, he is just good.  He is kind, respectful, and aims to please, smart and oh so funny.  This boy is wise beyond his years.

I truly love watching my children grow, seeing them become more and more independent, but I have to say a part of me is just sad...sad they are growing up so quickly.  I do feel it's as though I have blinked my eyes and my babies just are not babies anymore.  I know we hear it all the time, treasure each second because they grow so fast, and it is so true...we really just need to enjoy them when they are little, because it sure doesn't last long.  I hear moms all the time saying "I can't wait for them to just grow up"...I sometimes want to slap them..HA...just kiddiing....but as a mother of two adult children, I can say it just flies by so quick, so don't rush it, just enjoy it. 

Jack Ryan Florence...I instantly fell in love with this boy!

So much love from his brother and sister!

Ready to take this sweet boy home!
