    Default Am I weird ?

    My little man is officially 4 today. It's crazy how much he's grown. Kindve like the years flew by. I'm happy. He's happy but I can't help but feel a little sad, like he's growing up too quick. Has anyone else felt this way?

    Not weird at all!

    I'm already feeling that way and DS in only 20months but they seem to have flown!

    I'm pretty sure all parents feel this way, every parent of adult children I know informs me to cherish every moment, good or bad because they grow up so quickly!

    Happy 4th birthday to your little man! 🎉

    Yep. Mine is nearly 8. She's less than 30cm away from being the same height as me. Damn straight it's going too quickly! Where did my tiny baby go?!

    Yes, my baby boy (of 3 sons) is 4 1/2 and will be at school the start of next year, I'm feeling quite weird about it, the 'empty nest syndrome' It is very scary how time just flits away.

    I get choked up now whenever I see a movie or tv show etc where adult kids are leaving the nest etc... I just imagine it being DS and get all emotional!😢

    My DH thinks its hilarious how soft I've become! 😕

    He's full of it though because he'll be a mess too when it comes to DS leaving home! 😏

    Nawwww, happy birthday little moo!
    Totally normal to feel that way. I still get like that with my 10 year old and my youngest, at nearly 10 months, makes me feel that way at each milestone- where are my tiny babies?!
