I marked their height on the door frames yesterday. Sawyer grew 2 inches in 5 months! Tucker and Carter both grew 1 1/2 inches in such a short time.
Inch by Inch......they are changing.
They are changing too quickly.
I am powerless to stop it.
I am not sure that I want to stop it....
yet accepting it is difficult.
Inch by inch....
The challenges of parenting change.
From temper tantrums, broken toys, and making messes
Inch by inch as they grow,
I become more of a coach than an authoritarian.
I encourage good decisions and cringe over bad ones.
Inch by inch,
as the marks get higher on the wall....
I look at them in disbelief.
I am amazed by them.
In awe of the young man Tucker is becoming.
Impressed by the personality Sawyer has developed.
Encouraged by the self assurance Carter possesses.
Inch by Inch,
as they grow...
.....they are becoming what God intended them to be....
Inch by inch.
