“Only two hundred and twelve days left of Kindergarten”, I thought, as I lifted my daughter up on my shoulders and walked the quarter-mile home from school.
Halfway home, and feeling her weight heavier on my shoulders than years before, I wondered where my baby girl had gone.
I realize there will come a day where I won’t be able to carry her on my shoulders anymore.
That day is closer to my reality than I want it to be.
It’s not easy to fully appreciate time with the kids all the time. I get overwhelmed. I need breaks.
But, let me tell you, time flies. — They don’t stay little forever.
Change is the only constant. Enjoy your babies while you can. I will. — Even if they drive me bonkers.
Thank you for listening❤ Have a beautiful day.
