I truly can’t believe I am passing along this tip to you. It’s been one of those random statements that I get annoyed at when people say it to me. I hear it all the time. “Enjoy this time. It goes by so quick.” I always politely nod and smile, but in my heart I’m saying, “Really? Because it seems to be taking forever.” It really does feel like that. I’ve heard others says, “The days are long, but the years are short.” Maybe that’s true. All I know is that it is said enough by older women that I’m beginning to think there must be something to it. I am seeing it a little bit more now that my third has come along. He has seem to grown up quicker than the first two did. I have a child starting kindergarten this fall. I definitely can’t say with assurance, “Wow, that time just flew. We’re already starting kindergarten?” I hate to admit that my attitude is more like, “It’s about time, already.” I’ve learned to step out in faith and trust older, wiser, more experienced parents than me. So, I’m just passing along what I’m being told from every angle. I do have to say that since I have started becoming more intentional, my attitude about it taking forever has changed a bit. I am really trying to enjoy and embrace more of this time rather than just survive these toddler years. As I’ve been told by countless women in line at the grocery store to cherish every moment. I can’t quite embrace cherishing “every” moment, but I can try and make each day a bit more meaningful.
