Song Stuck on the Brain: I Belive that Children are Our Future by Whitney Houston
Today is Allie-gator's 9th birthday. I can't believe the baby is growing up so fast. She's the youngest of the 3 I've helped to care for. Dad commented today that in three years he and Mom probably won't be babysitting anymore.
I asked, "How come?"
"Because they'll be 12, 14, and 16. They won't need babysitters."
I feel old. Really old. Then I remembered that Mom and Dad will be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary in 4 years. And I felt even older.
At this point, I'm ready to go home and try to roll back a few years.
