9 weeks... of little sleep and screaming babies.  Of boys staying too long with loving grandparents and a house full of crazy.  Of short tempers and giant piles of laundry.

It's all a blur.  9 weeks feels like 9 months, but all too soon it will really be 9 months and I will wonder where it's gone.

Perspective is seeing my 5 year old reach 4 feet tall and teaching him to read.  Seeing my 2 year old learning new words every day and enjoying outings without me.  Knowing that soon they will be 5th and 2nd grade and I will wonder where it's gone.

Trying to remember not to get bogged down in the little things that are so frustrating and remember where they fit in the big picture.  Time.

  1. I loved your post. Time does go by so fast, we blink and it's gone. It's important to take advantage of each moment given to us. Thanks for this reminder.

  2. Krista, the time does go by all too fast, especially when we get bogged down in life's little details. Enjoy every minute.
