What happened? I must have blinked.
We had our niece and nephew over tonight. We went on a hike, ate hotdogs and smores on a camp fire, told stories in the dark, and caught lightening bugs.
But actually, I didn't catch the lightening bugs. The kids did, while I sat quietly by the fire, occasionally emitting an approving, "Ahhh!" or "Wow!"
And as I watched them running around, giggling in the dark after the little specks of light, and then tucked them in the tent with dad and left them to go sleep in the house w/ the youngest, I realized that I had grown up.
And I don't remember that happening...
