I have to keep saying this to myself.
This is the age I will be when Baby Ellie graduates from high school.
Yes, fifty-one.
How did this happen?
I am having a very hard time digesting this.
When I first became a mom back in 1999 I had things all figured out.
I was going to get to be a mom and by the time my kid graduated from high school I would only be 38 and I’d have my entire life ahead of me still.
And then, I had my second child in 2000 which meant I would be 39 when she graduated.
Then, I got pregnant, got married and had a baby in 2008.
And now, here I am in 2011, approaching my 33rd birthday and preparing for the arrival of my fourth child.
I will be 51 when she graduates from school.
The Alex, he’ll only be 45.
I really need to work on digesting this……

    Kids give you both stress and youth. It’s a little daunting looking at a number and thinking how time has flown, but remember that whatever the number is, you have a life and a great family. Raising 4 children is such a great triumph that many never get to savor. At 51, you’re watching your 4th miracle walk across the stage. It’s something you will always treasure. And the story only continues from there!
