Having older children now has made me very much aware of time and pace at which it moves. Everyone warns you of this fact when you first become a parent and it isn’t until, you look back you realize how fast time actually went.
For many of you who have little ones who are exhausted, and it just seems like it’s never going to end. Instead every day, gets harder and harder and truth is sometimes it does. But the other truth is time really does fly and if we aren’t paying attention to it, we can miss so much.
Today I want to talk about time and how as parents it is so important to understand how quick it moves and really try to make a point of enjoying the moments while they are here.
