~Where Did The Time Go~

I thought the summer vacation,
was lasting way to long.
I wanted the kids to go back to school,
and listen to the bells ring ding-dong.

Now that they are back,
and the house is peaceful once again.
I find myself wishing,
he was back in his playpen.

He seems so grown up,
where did the time go?
Did I miss something,
when did he grow?

He's in the 8th grade now,
and he's taller than me.
I can't recall him growing up,
so how can this be.

I want my baby back,
to cuddle in my arms.
I want to protect him,
and keep him safe from harm.

What am I thinking,
have I gone totally insane?
The kids are back in school,
and I don't have to hear him complain.

The house is peaceful once again,
no more complaining there's nothing to do.
Cause now he has homework,
and boy does he have a slew.

Author's Notes:

I love that my son is older and can take care of himself,
but I also miss my baby and wish I could have him back.

The joys of parenthood. well not that I would know but at a guess I'd say I would feel the same in your shoes. But still the time does come and they grow up and hopefully become rich and support you when your old and grey. Well thats my plan anyways.
Great right

What a wonderful poem sis. The rhyming scheme was great, the flow seemed effortless, and the message is all too true. I find myself asking these same questions about my children. Very nice write. Your' love for Tyler simply floods the page...Hugz...your' big sister Jillian
