Quote Of The Week ~ June 5, 2016

I had this quote in my archives from a few weeks ago where I had posted it to Instagram and Facebook.  

I had actually meant to use it for a “Quote Of The Week” a while back, but somewhere in my blogging hiatus, not writing much lately, and the new adventure I have embarked on that I will be writing about, it had gotten brushed aside.

I LOVE this quote.  It sums up motherhood perfectly.  Or even parenting in general.  We want to teach them and watch them grow into great adults but we get sad when we’ve actually accomplished it.  Sad that they are leaving us but happy that we kept them alive!

They’re no longer those babies that once looked at us with such admiration.  

They’re all grown up.

    1. It’s been a very emotional 2 weeks for me as I am watching each of my kids reach new milestones and knowing that someday those milestones won’t include me as much. But that’s parenting. It’s love, aggravation, sadness, and joy all rolled into one.


  1. So true. Daughter 1 has just made all the packed lunches for tomorrow, while I am sitting outside in the evening sun, drinking wine. I’ve trained her well methinks! However, she will be going off to Uni next year…eek!! #candidcuddles

    1. I have an 18 year old who just graduated and will be leaving for the army in Aug. He didn’t live with us the past year as he decided to make some bad choices but I am glad he learned a lesson and is on the right path now. That’s all we ever truly want for our kids…to find the right path, to be good people, and to always be happy. Thanks for popping over and commenting!


  2. I completely get this quote, Little Button is still small but growing up quickly. I really notice small things like not needing to help anyone with shoes and coats… tiny things. But it’s still bitter sweet. #Candidcuddles

  3. It is always that bittersweet moment when you realized you no longer need to hold their hands and that is sad but you can be proud of the fact that you helped them become independent and strong and that is why they don’t need the hand anymore. Love the quote Trista! I remember seeing this on Instagram a few weeks ago. Glad you have shared it on your blog:) #candidcuddles

  4. Ya that is so true! It’s wonderful to watch them grow & achieve but hard for them to need you less & then one day to leave & make their own decisions. Definitely a mix of emotions! Thanks so much for sharing with #candidcuddles
