I used to hate it when older moms would say things like,”Hold on to your babies. They’ll be grown before you know it!” The early days with four children ages five and under seemed to take forever. Sure there were sweet memories, but the work load was intense and I wondered when I would ever get a break.
Now I know what those moms meant. My son took this photo last week and when I saw it I just couldn’t believe how big my “little” girls look. It’s a reminder to hold on to these days when children are home because they are fleeting.
