My How Time Flies!

As a parent, especially a new one, you hear from people daily  about how time flies with your children. "Enjoy this age," and "they grow up so fast," people have said to me on a daily basis.  They were speaking the truth.  Enjoy every minute. Pay attention, listen, laugh, guide, teach, hold, and love with all you are.  Time is precious, and yes, it moves too quickly.
