Only a Short Time

Our children are only little for a short time.  While the days can be long, the years are short.  I remind myself throughout the day with our ever-changing 2 1/2 year old that:  he’s young and will only be this age once, to take a breath and enjoy him, to delight in his excitement of the world, and even when he has a cheeky gleam in his eye that I get to be his Mom.

You will never have this day
with your child again.
Tomorrow they’ll be a little
older than they we’re today.
This day is a gift.
Breathe and notice.
Smell and touch them;
study their faces
and little feet and pay attention.
RELISH THE CHARMS
of THE PRESENT.

Enjoy today, mama.
It will be over before you know it.”
