big kid

andrew started t-ball on friday. i feel as though i have blinked and suddenly i have this child before me. he will be 5 in two weeks. i am having difficulty grasping that. the days of his babyhood and toddlerhood are long gone. oh, those were such hard days. i sure do have several extra gray hairs courtesy of my sweet boy. however, as with any difficult season, it passes. he is on spring break this week and i am loving being able to spend quality time with him. most days i bring him to school and then after picking him up at the end of the day, i am running around the house gathering my things for school, getting the boys ready to go to their grandma's, and honestly, finishing up a paper last-minute. i haven't had opportunities to spend one-on-one time with him and i miss it. most of the time when i am not running off to class he relaxes on the couch and we don't do anything of quality together.
i'm going to remedy that this week. we'll make intentional memories and enjoy each other's company. before he turns 5 and i no longer have a little boy but a big kid.
