I hit me a few days ago...in just a few months, my youngest will graduate from high school. The baby boy is a young man now. I don't know if he'll leave the house any time soon, but he doesn't need me the same way that he did when he was learning to walk and talk and say the words "We'll be right back!" Someday, though, he will leave to take on the world on his own.
Where did all that time go?
Today, while I was wondering that, I came across this poem. If you've already been there and done that, you'll get it. If you're there now, you'll understand. If you're still parenting young ones and wonder how you'll ever survive...read this. Time is precious. Enjoy every moment you can.
