We're staying with some college friends this weekend at the beach. It's fun and just a little crazy since there are 6 adults and 9 children, the majority of them under 3.

However we have on average by far the oldest of the kids. While the girls are still little they are speaking in sentences and there's usually an easily defined reason for why they are upset. I can even see the light at the end of the 8 year long diaper tunnel.

Don't get me wrong, I love babies, but I'm glad to be moving out of the baby years. Things are changing, mostly for the better, and for once I'm happy with it.

I don't usually handle change real well, especially if it's sprung upon me (just ask my husband), but if there's anything I'm learning as I get older it's that life is always changing whether I want it to or not. It just may be more obvious when you have kids!

I think perhaps I wanted life to stay the same because then I could at least know what to expect. But some of these days (with 4 kids) have been really hard. And I'm sure some of the future days will be hard in ways I can't expect. But I'm ready for something new!

And hopefully I'm learning that change is okay and even good sometimes!

What about you? How do you deal with change?
