site As they stand, eating Klondikes, standing on the staircase facing eachother talking and laughing about their day. I can’t believe my baby girl is 20 and heading back to college in two weeks and my baby boy is 17, towers over my head and will be applying for college in a few weeks. My mind traces back to the days when they would have a fight and I would make them stand, facing eachother – touching “Noses and Toes-es” until they apologized (or laughed and forgot what the fight was about). This is a fond memory for me but when I retell it, they do not remeber it so fondly! But now they love spending anytime they can spend together and I know my husband and I have done right by them. They feel love and are loved.
