MOM. Press Pause Please!

These are the words that I often hear from my son when he is watching one of his movies and has to go to the bathroom or wants to stop it so that he can play for a while. Every time I hear him say these words I think to myself.... Wouldn't it be nice if I could really press pause? I wish I could press pause right now in real life to slow things down a bit because little son you are growing up way to fast. I think to myself.... when did the constant conversation back and forth begin. When did you start problem solving because son you are quiet the problem solver. When did you start going to the bathroom all by yourself? When did you start laughing at parts of movies you think are funny? When did you start telling us that you love us too? It seems like everything you have learned happened overnight. You are so smart. You are so kind. You are so beautiful and loving. Daddy and I just want to hold you and cuddle with you and read books with you and play with you. We know that you are going to grow and there is nothing we can do to stop it, we just want you to know how much we love you and that we will/would do anything for you. "Press Pause Please!" No problem. Anything for you babe!
