9 Things I Am Not Looking Forward To As My Kids Get Older

By Devan McGuinness |

9 Things I Am Not Looking Forward To As My Kids Get OlderThere is so much to look forward to as my kids get older. I love how much they’ve changed already and how we’ve been able to watch them grow, learn, and develop into the fun characters they are now.

I am hoping to get at least 70 more years with them in my life (yes, I want to live to at least 100-years-old) and I am excited to see what the future brings us. I am looking forward to high school, their first loves, marriages, having their own children (oh, grand kids!!) and all the in-between awesome things, too.

I will admit though that there are some things I am really not looking forward to. They are basically inevitable, and we welcome them to come into our lives, but I am not excited about it… in the least!
