As a new mom, I was always afraid to look away in case my child accidentally swallowed something or toppled over. Now, I’m afraid to even blink because it’s all going too fast!
This is the number one thing everyone tells you. “Enjoy it because it goes by so quick”. What an understatement. I can’t even think about it without crying. What a wuss!
Little Moments With Her
Knowing that time is moving so fast, I have changed the way I manage my time all together.
I realize this when she is trying to show me something, and I’m either on my phone or doing some sort of mindless thing. That’s when I take a second and think about how fast she is growing and how I will miss these little moments that I will never get back.
I’ve realized it’s more important to live in the now.
I have slowed down to a snail’s pace while doing everyday things, so I can enjoy the little things with her.
What mattered before just doesn’t anymore. If my daughter can’t go, I probably won’t either. I know when I look back on life, I won’t remember the times without her, I will remember little moments with my children and hold onto those memories forever.
