So yesterday Douglas started swimming and I mean really swimming, not just doggie paddling ( he is five years old) JM started going underwater and jumping in the deep end with swimmies on etc, he is trying to swim but not getting it as well as Douglas is KR is finally getting her face in the water, due to sensory issues this is a big deal in our house. then today, on a whim I took the training wheels off of their bikes, and they are doing it, all by themselves no training wheels, well the boys are Kalie hates her bike and refuses to ride it, but not my boys they are just a going.. they really are not babies any more are they? I am very proud of them.. but sad that i no longer have babies

Enjoy your free time, remember how hard babies are.. they wake up every three hours need to be feed, changed and pregnancy is well not always fun..

That is great news. My stepson was 5 when I taught him to ride his 2 wheeler. My daughter on the other hand who recently turned 5 a few months ago refuses to want to even try. All 3 of my children love to swim. My youngest is the only one who doesnt like to go under water. They do grow up so quickly. I know how you feel. From the time they are born to age 5 or 6 it flies by and the baby stage is history! Soungs like your children are doing great. Before you know it they will be doing a bunch of other things on their own without any help.

It is an exciting time in our lives. Kalie refuses to even ride her bike with the training wheels. Most less without them.

Ain't it the truth! Geez. My daughter will be 6 in July. She went on a bike ride with her daddy today. Heck last week she fixed everyone breakfast.Bread with jelly never tasted so sweet. My little lady. At this point when I look at her almost 6 month old brother I mourn her baby-dom and try and absorb again as much of him being small as I can. Like I did with her.I will be 40 next April, so there in't another baby on the horizon. You aren't alone. All I can say is this is payback for doing the same to our parents! lol

Cherish these moments, I am 40 as well and as you said their will be no more babies for me, that is unless I foster one (which is what we plan on doing as soon as these angels go to school next fall)

They grow up way too fast. My son is finishing second grade and my daughter is graduating Kindergarten Monday. It doesn't seem like it's been that long since I was holding them in my arms, and changing their diapers.
