Have You Ever

It's that time again my friends. Time to ask others if they have ever done/thought/wanted/had/watched the same stuff as you so you can feel like you are not alone in this big, crazy world.

I am starting to feel like I am alone because no one is participating with me.

But that's OK.

I guess.

Have you ever felt like you were all alone in this big world and that no one liked you?

Have you ever had a "Woe is Me" day.......everyday?

Have you ever felt like you were so busy but feel like you get nothing done?
Like laundry?

Have you ever taken pictures of your children and wondered how they got so big because it feels like yesterday that each of them were newborns?

Have you ever been sad about this?
Or do you embrace every new phase that comes about as they get older?
I am trying my hardest to embrace every new chapter.

Now join in damn it.

I have felt alone, wondered how my kids are growing so fast, felt so tired b/c I was busy all day only to notice that I have no clean panties. I have had woe is me days where I don't move off the couch. I feel ya.

I like this writing prompt ... I'll try to come back next week. I'd do it today, but I already have 3 posts to go out today! (crazy I know)

have a good day!
don't give up!

I will try try try to remember next week...especially since I always seem to visit you on Mondays!
I have a hard time embracing the age thing, too. I hate it when they get bigger so fast.

Yes, to every single one. And no, I don't embrace each phase - I'm too busy mourning the one that passed. (it's something I need to work on - otherwise him going to college will literally kill me.....)

Jenners said...

OKAY!!! You've guilted me into it. (Plus I need a post idea that is fairly easy to write so I'll do a Have You Ever post tomorrow.)

i love every stage my children go through but man it is so hard to watch it happen so fast!

I'm going to try to remember to work on a Have you ever post for next week.

I know exactly what you mean. Kids grow up too fast! One minute I'm grumbling about how I want them to grow out of whatever stage they're in, and the next minute I'm crying because I let time slip away!

Each new phase is great. But I think I'll always miss my babies and little toddlers and little kindergarten-aged children. It just doesn't last long enough. And yet ... it also does last long because those are the clean-all-day-and-nothing-stays-clean phase. I guess everything comes with a trade off.

I will try to remember next Monday too!!! Do you have a button or this meme?

FourJedis said...

I think I have done all of those actually! Great list and love the pics.

Jenners said...

I've just come from visiting Jenners where I saw your meme mentioned. Such a wonderful idea, I'm hoping to join in soon by posting my own 'have you ever's'. Anyway, its been nice meeting you, I've enjoyed my visit.

Hmm, considering the meme - how often do you play?

I still look at my kids all the time and wonder how they get so big. :(
