16 years ago...

on this day, I became a Mom for the very first time.
I snuck downstairs, into Zack's room this morning and gave him a kiss on the forehead(he was sleeping and I had to go to work)...much like the one I gave him the very first time I saw him. It's hard to believe that he was once about as long as from the top of his head to his shoulder and now, he is 6'1"!!
If I could slow time down, I would...just a little but since that is not possible, I plan to enjoy every minute I have left with him under our roof because if the last 16 years could go by this fast, the next 2 will be here and gone before I know it.

Happy Canada Day too everyone. I hope you can enjoy some celebrations with people you love tomorrow.
