I, too, felt the sadness of not having a "little" person in the house. And that is how Linus came to live with us. And I'm sure in the next 5-8 years, we will have some grandchildren, I can wait till then. I must go now and cut up snacks for after nap time. This dog is like a perpetual toddler. (Just kidding, I don't cut the snacks up.)

Couple of "bright side" comments......at least you have LOTS of photos of all the "old" traditions. I find myself also mourning the "little" days. But I also find myself loving the not so small anymore people my girls are becoming. I love that we can go to the movies now, and everyone sits through the whole movie. I love that I can take them shopping with me and no one crawls under clothing racks, or gets themselves lost. I love that we are starting to read the same books, watch the same TV shows and can talk about world events without having to explain where Afghanistan is.....I miss them being small enough to sit on my lap, or be carried around the house by me, or being able to solve all their problems with a hug and a popsicle....but there's not much I can do....except look back at the TONS of photos I took of them and remember. Happy New year to you!

I do the same things.. and at times I feel it ruins the event at the time. I am getting better at embracing when they participate in my losing tradition. I mean really how long can I expect a 19 and 21 year old to decorate the tree with Santa hats, smiling faces and Christmas music. I'm thankful I didn't throw a tantrum this year..last year wasn't my best year. But it will return again someday..no hurry on grandchildren...but it will happen again.

Not only can totally relate to running out of little kids for Christmas but I am now running out of grandbabies. I find it very difficult to enjoy the holidays these days. What I do look forward to during the holiday season is all the people I know with little ones who share on their blogs or post on Facebook about their trips to see Santa and the shenanigans of their Elves on a shelf. Being a grown up is not much fun for sure.

I heard a family/life counselor say that we just have to thoroughly grieve that time of our lives and then move forward. My only is 12 - and I do find myself grieving at times. But I wouldn't choose to go backwards and miss the wonderful boy/man he is becoming.

"running out of little kids" -- this made me smile!
Karen, what do kids write in those letters to Santa?
Happy New Year to you all! Thank you for making this year so much worthwhile for me!

You said it so well, and my kids are 28 and 31...and I still yearn for those little kid days. The nice thing is, they also loved those days, and enjoy sharing their stories about when they were kids...and they remember things that I didn't. Change is a constant, and sometimes hard to embrace....and a good reminder to embrace the now. I hope this New Year's Eve lets to reflect on all the memories of 2014, and anticipate the goodness of a New Year. Hugs,

Happy new Year!! I'm completely with you there, this was the first year that my three didn't go and visit a Santa and it really does make me sad. We still had our elf visit the house but for some reason the magic seemed to go a little bit this year. I'm determined to hang on for a little bit longer!!

Lisa

My little is turning five in a few weeks and I Find myself sad for the same reasons. We have been struggling for the last three years to conceive and as I resign to the fact that it might not happen, I cherish the moments I have had with my daughter.

Yikes, run on sentence alert.

Just wanted to comment and let you know I appreciate all your tips, tricks and insights. I rarely comment, but wanted to make sure you knew you were connecting with so many people, even if we don't often say it in a comment.

I am also very intrigued by your new announcement... waiting with baited breath. :)

Mine are 13 and 10. Life is so much easier than it used to be, but even that makes me sad. I guess it's time to embrace the new normal and enjoy the amazing individuals they are becoming. You are not alone!

It really is simply in what you are able to pay from the own pants pocket as against what you would like the insurance carrier to offer. Online insurance policy is swiftly taking around the world, replacing the particular old standard measures which before seemed being the correct way for getting insurance.

Its not all Mexican tourist automobile insurance is the identical. If you might be driving the US or perhaps Canadian automobile to Mexico, you should find out what insurance coverage and benefits to find when searching for your Mexico insurance.
