“Enjoy it now because it goes by fast!” is a sentiment that I’ve been told over and over again ever since I became a mom almost 12 years ago. It’s so true, the time DOES fly by and the kids DO grow up WAY too quickly.
Last night when I threw away the last of my baby proofing gear, I was reminded to stop and “enjoy it now because it goes by fast.” My baby (who is almost 4 now) isn’t a baby anymore! I got sad and I cried…yet at the same time, I also felt glad and thankful for the reminder; the reminder to slow down and “enjoy it.”
I spent the rest of the evening (while it lasted) cuddled up on the couch with my kiddos enjoying the moment.
