My children are ages 4 and 2 and one on the way. I was thinking today...
'I am having so much fun with them at this age, I don't want this to end.'
Then there are days when I long for them to help with chores and be responsible enough to play in the back yard without me and buckle their own seat belt and put on their own shoes... the list goes on.
I once heard a very true statement that says it all.
"When the children are young, the days are long but the years are short."
