No One Ever Told Me

           No one ever told me it would be this hard. No one ever told me that when you give birth to a child you no longer live for only yourself or that you would forever wear your heart on your sleeve.            No one ever told me that having a child meant a lifetime of sleepless nights and endless prayers.
       No one ever told me that on the first day of kindergarten you would cry because you miss them like crazy and can't believe they are just so big. No one ever told me that on the last day of senior year you would cry because you miss that kindergarten day when you thought they were so big when in reality they were so tiny.
        No one ever told me that I would be sitting here on the last day of school and wish I could go back to simpler times. Times when my babies were babies and not half grown men.
When the boys were small I used to get so stressed about everything. If their hair wasn't brushed right, if they got dirty, if they did not use their manners properly. Now here I sit all these years later and I realize you can never get yesterday back so enjoy it while you can because if you blink it will disappear never to be seen again.
