Don't Blink

Do you ever stare at your children and say, ‘where did the time go’? Because in just the blink of an eye, they’re a little taller, a little older, a little more different. So be present in the moment. Put your phone down. Play with them. Study their faces. Hold them and smell them. Listen to their gibberish. Watch them laugh and fight and cry. Applaud their every song and dance. Pay attention to what they say. Get dirty and sticky and sloppy with them. Snuggle and cuddle before you put them to sleep. Read them their favorite story and notice the sparkle in their eye. Remember, the best part of being a parent is in these little, fleeting moments. So be present, try not to blink, and take it all in.
