It's time for another Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge and I'm SO excited to be using this super cute image called "Bye Bye" by Mo's Digital Pencil. I can't really explain though how this image really tugs at my heartstrings...
Do you remember the video I showed you on THIS post? I look at this image and how it reminds me of my little one and I think of this quote from the video:
...THAT's why I have to LOVE YOU this FIERCELY....so that you can feel it even after you leave for school...or even while you're asleep....or even after your childhood becomes a memory..."
I often wonder how it's possible that the time goes so fast. My kids are getting so big and it's happening so quickly and it's kind of awesome and kind of heartbreaking all at the same time. With the getting older, we are able to do more, have conversations, "get" each other...but with the getting older comes the crazy time warp....the disappearance of "baby arms" (you guys know-the little 'chicken fat' they grow out of), just little things here and there that really make me sad.
Luckily our youngest missed the Sept cut off for school so she will be home for one more year of preschool next year before she starts Kindergarten...but this image really evoked a strange feeling of her getting older and going off to school...and I ADORE it, fear it, dislike it, and smile at it, all at the same time, if that even makes sense? I don't know...just funny to me how a stamped image can bring forth so much emotion to the surface...but then again, I know I'm not alone in this, right?
Well, as I write this we are enjoying a MUCH anticipated Disney vacation so I'll be in and out this week-but thanks for stopping by to see this AWESOME sketch by my good friend:
