I'll miss this one day

In an effort to remind myself of the joys, rather than the woes of being the mom, I'm starting a new post thread about the things I think I'll miss one day when the kids are grown. (I got this idea from the neatest blog and from the blog linked to the above button. Play along if you'd like! I'd love to read about what you'll miss.)
Someday I'll miss listening to the endless daily conversations between children that are so insignificant to my adult mind but so terribly important to their little minds, like this one between little Miss S and Kolby: "Can I please hold your rock for five minutes? I promise I'll give it back. If you just let me hold your rock for five minutes, I'll be your best friend and I'll invite you to my birthday." {Sidenote: they are literally standing among thousands of rocks. We have no shortage of rocks in our neighborhood, but for some reason, only this one will do.}

Such a good idea... I think I'll start doing this on my blog as well! Thanks! It is always easier to pick out the things you WON"T miss as a mom, and we forgdet the things we WILL miss.

I will miss always being on the run to a basketball or football game. I will miss opening the basement door and yelling, "Turn that down!" I will miss the sound of tons of teenage boys having fun together in my home.
