Truisms

As I prepare for Spring Soccer (the King), and Varsity Baseball (The Cadet), work on signing up the King for Kindergarten and planning his fifth birthday party while discussing classes and college thoughts with the Cadet - I have stumbled across several truims across the web related to the boys and the rapid fire pace at which they are moving forward in life.

As such, I thought I would share a few with you all here.....

First the training wheels come off - Then it's "Mom , I've joined a group called Hell's Angels" They grow up so fast ! (Yeah - isn't that the truth - right now I am helping the King with learning to ride without training wheels, and the cadet with "where he is going in life


The speed at which your child moves is inversely proportioinal to the speed you WANT them to move! (It seems like I am always telling one of them to slow down while telling the other to get a move on...is it their age?)

When a child of mine begins a sentence with "Now don't get angry..." it seems to have the reverse effect. (You know what I am talkin about.....you parents of teenagers!)

Having one child makes you a parent; having two makes you a referee. (Nuff Said)

A child’s greatest period of growth is the month after you’ve purchased new school uniforms.
(The cadet has put on 1.25 inches in the last month! Watch out for another "Cast Report". That is usually what happens!)

Having children will turn you into your parents. (Nuff Said)

And quite possibly, the most true parental trueism for this time in the Merry Land of Oz - or maybe even in your home...

We have them just where they want us.
