Where did the time go?

So I came across these pictures today when I was trying to finish my blog, and I thought....how is it possible that all these babies are people now? They have grown up so fast. They think for themselves they create problems for themselves and they make their own decisions.....for the most part. As a person there isn't much I regret. The mistakes I have made, I have learned from and the great decisions I have rejoiced in. But as a mother I always wonder...Have I done enough? Have I listened enough? Am I there for them enough? I don't think there is a mother on this Earth that hasn't questioned their abilities as a mother. Do you think it is our conscience asking those questions, so that the next day you wake up you try a little harder?
I know I wasn't a great mom to Tyler. I made mistakes. I spanked to quickly, I yelled to often, I was to impatient. But he always tells me that I was great. Hopefully they forget all the mistakes we made, as we forget what little stinkers they really were.

Beautiful blog. Cute kids. After reading that I guess it should make me want to get up off of my lazy butt and away from this computer and go downstairs to be with my kids - but they are like SO QUIET watching Jurrasic Park! Guess I'll go do dishes before Greg gets home! =)
You are a great mother Terri.
