watched as the neighborhood kids peddled their bikes

our driveway has always been the perfect raceway

brought back images of my boys

scrambling on their bikes, scooters, skateboards

they are grown now

no more bandaging scraped knees

no more wiping away tears

no more reminders to wear their helmets

and to not ride past the mailbox!

yesterday was Mother’s Day

and it hit me that I’ve been a mom for almost 25 years

like the speed of those bike wheels

time really does fly
