Blink and you'll miss it...

"Wiser" parents, grandparents and friends have always politely told me to enjoy each "season" of my children's life. At the time it always seemed like an odd comment as I was changing a dirty diaper, cleaning up baby food off the highchair or running after an energy-filled child.

Miss changing diapers, the messes, the noise?

But...they are right in every sense. Each day brings it mixed blessings and challenges. I personally wouldn't want to miss a moment of my children's adventures. Adventures like Fiona's first swim with (Late) Grandpa Kent and Daddy at three months old or Fiona taking swimming lessons on her own four years later.

Blink and you'll miss it...

So true. It's bitter sweet! Reminds me of a line in a song

"forget about trying the hands of time! Live every minute to the one who's given today!"

Some day's I look at my kid's my heart is so full it aches!

Precious family you have!
