Today is the Last Day

For exactly
one week

each year,
my younger four children
line up in a tidy step formation of ages:

10


6

5


4


3

Today is my last day of being mother to 6, 5, 4 and 3 year olds. Tomorrow, one of them has a birthday and messes up my whole happy system (there's always one in a group who has to rebel!) ;)

Call me crazy (many have), but I love the fact that for a short time each year, my younger four children line up like a little step ladder. Next year, when for a week, I have children ages 11, 7, 5, 4, and 3, I'm going to get shirts made with their ages on them, line 'em up and have a photo shoot.

Ah, the daydreams of a waiting mother.
