It is an odd thing when someone who played with your children as a child has a baby of her own. It hits too close to home. I feel years away from this stage and yet here we are. I've known the recipient of these booties since she was three - Anders was a newborn at the time. I am struggling to think of her as a mom.
And not that I don't wish the new parents all the love and joy that my own children have brought me. This is just one of those moments that makes me reflect back on myself. How can I be old enough that SHE is having a baby? Wasn't I just at this stage?
Maybe it's partly the birthday that I celebrated last week. It seems I just turned 40, yet here I am so very, very close to 50. Sigh. STOP IT Kirsten! Little Miss "It's All About Me". Lizzie is having a baby. It should be all about her.
