Long Days

Parenting: the days are long but the years are short.

I just read this quote on Facebook, and it suits what I was thinking tonight. I’m so tired and just want to kids to go to bed, and yet Emmy was giving me her “cute face.” She resists bedtime right up to the minute her head hits the pillow. As I carried her to her room, I thought that as tired as I am, it won’t be long until she’s too big for me to carry her. It won’t be long at all.

The days are long indeed, but the years, they simply fly.

  1. I actually remember the first person to say that to me. And of course it was a lightbulb for me, first time, and I looked at her like the genius she was!
    What’s funny, though, is that days are shorter in the winter but feel so much longer to me.

  2. This is so true, so true. Some days seem so very long. Some hours seem so very long! But the years do fly. Good insight. Blessings to you as you enjoy these fleeting years. 🙂
