I’m in New Mexico for my nephew’s highschool graduation and the thought that keeps going through my head is “time goes by so fast.” Wasn’t it only a few weeks ago that I was holding him as a brand new baby? Yet here I sit- 18 years, 4 nieces, 1 nephew and one child of my own later…yes, time flies by. It has so far in the life of my toddler and I need these reminders to live in the present and enjoy the moment.
My son is now peacefully napping in my arms, and even though people often ask me how I ever get anything done, I know how quickly this phase will pass. I wouldn’t trade this time for anything in the world. I know I can’t do anything about the speed of life, but for now I’m going to hold my baby, not make excuses about it, and enjoy every second of it.
