Do any of you feel sad?

I have 3 babies. My ds is 20, dd is 14, and dd is 9. I am so sad some BABY is 9. She is almost as tall as I am and I miss that baby stage terribly. Do any of you with older kids ever feel this way?

  • YES! My bonus children are 17yo, 15yo, and my bio is 11yo.... I wimper all the time because no more babies! I tell the 11yo that she will ALWAYS be my baby, even though she will/should/must/with my blessing grow up! I loved being a mom to a tiny, preemie baby and will absolutely love, cherish, and miss those wonderful days and hours when I got to stay home with her.... feeding, cooing, rocking, napping.... sigh!

  • My daughter is 7......Just 7...........

    Everytime she gets off the bus .....she skips down the road.....

    And I want to cry......I could cry about it right now...

    Because I know one day that she will be skipping off to college one day...

    I wish she was in diapers I miss that.!!

  • mandielynn23: lol. my mom said the same thing when we were 10 and 12 and contiplated more kids...
    then she got a cat... lol.
    then I moved out and all my friends were having kids and I wasn't ready.. so I got a cat, lmao... it worked to.. until we moved and couldn't take our cat with us, so i gave it to my grandfather (he has a large yard so being indoor outdoor cat it was great for him).. and then I got pregnant, lmao.
