Time went on and I had the feeling the children had accepted the fact that I was part of the pack. The moment that secured that feeling was when the oldest came home from school and made a drawing.
The drawing showed him, his brother, his father and.. me. I smiled at him, excused myself to go to the toilet and tears were rolling over my cheeks. I was in love with these little kids and I wouldn’t wanted to let them go.
A month later my boyfriend asked me out for a special dinner. And that was the moment he popped the question. He was so sorry if it went too fast but he couldn’t’ hold down his feelings for me any longer. Besides it’s not like we were still 18. Life can go fast, very fast. Enjoy the moments while it lasts!
