so sad my kids are getting older

hi friends, feeling really sad lately about my kids getting too old! i have a 6 and 9 year old. the other night i was talking to the 9 year old about her and her cousins getting too big! well forget, the tears hit me like a sledgehammer and i have not stopped crying. my husband keeps telling me its life's journey and it is a normal process of life, getting older. but i just keep looking at them and wishing i could freeze time. but it is killing me. I will be fine for a few hours and then pass their baby pics and start crying almost like a panic attack. I am an emotional person who deals with anxiety issues. but this just seems like its too much even for me. its almost like I am grieving. I want to enjoy this time with them and don't want to be crying for the next 10 years or so about them getting older! so sad

Re: so sad my kids are getting older

I understand how you feel. My youngest is 8 and my oldest is 17. They do grow up fast and before you know it time has gone. Try to find a hobby or something to keep your mind busy so that you aren't so focused on it. You could also focus on how well you have done with them. The wonderful young people they are. Focus on what they accomplish. The positives. Tell yourself that someday you will have grand babies to pass around.
