Toy Story - Memories

When our boys were little tykes, we would take turns having one-on-one time with each one. On one of these one-on-ones I took our oldest (5yo at the time) to the drive-in.

You know I don't remember what the first movie was but "Toy Story" was the second movie. By the time it came on my baby boy was out. As the movie started I tried waking him up but he slept through it. I was going to leave but the movie was just too darn cute.

We purchased the video as soon as it came out and it quickly became the boys' favorite, along with "Toy Story 2".

As I saw the ads for "Toy Story 3" I couldn't help but tear up.  It just all went by SO fast!  I miss our movie nights, mattresses on the floor, "tent" taking up half the livingroom.  I miss hearing my boys call me "Mommy".  I miss being the most fabulous person in their lives.

Note to Moms:  Don't worry so much about the dishes in the sink or laundry that needs to be done.  (I am SO glad I didn't make those my first priority.)  Make each day count.  Make each day a good memory in your child's life.

Love this post! My oldest kids are 21, 18 & 17..and wow,did it ever fly by. There are moments I'm stunned when I look at them, they still seem like babies to me. I still have a 8 & 4 y/o and I have slowed down to enjoy my time with them!

Amy, so glad to meet another mom here with older babies too. I Still see mine as little guys too.

I wanted to see Toy Story 3 until I saw the commercial...Andy goes to college. My oldest (18) just finished his first year of college.

I can't go now! I'd be bawling the whole time!
