I Wonder…


I wonder what tidbits of information my children are taking with them as they grow older. I don’t wonder so much about the stuff that they’ll learn, but more about the stuff that they “did.”

For instance, my youngest daughter, almost every single time we drive by this lake by our house, yells “Water! Daddy, look! Look at the water!” IMG_20130602_132243She does this, almost every single time. I wonder if she’ll remember that as she gets older. I wonder how old she will be when she stops saying it. I wonder if I’ll be too busy to even notice when she does…

I wonder if my oldest daughter remembers watching Kelly Clarkson win the very first American Idol competition with me. IMG_20130611_102919I wonder if she remembers her and I singing “A Moment Like This” at the top of our lungs as I held her in my arms and danced with her. I wonder if she understands why I still sing it around her sometimes…

I wonder if my second-oldest will remember when she rode her bike without any help for the first time. IMG_20130528_152624I wonder if she’ll remember telling me to “Let go,” even though I already had twenty yards back. I wonder if she understands why I still like to ride bikes with her…

I wonder if my second-youngest will remember drawing pictures non-stop almost every single morning with me for a few months span when she was 2-3 years-old. IMG_20130611_102102I wonder if she realizes that she got those sweet drawing skills from watching and copying me repeatedly, day after day…

Sometimes I wonder if I type this stuff occasionally, just so I don’t let the memories fade away…

I wonder if my kids will actually read this when they’re older. If they do, I wonder if maybe then they’ll realize just how much I so dearly love them…
