Time...it really does fly

Wednesday, 4 March 2015

This week I've been thinking about time. Time goes fast. This week has been a week of milestones. Mikey was offered place at the secondary school of his choice and Dot rolled over for the first time.

It got me thinking. It doesn't seem like many minutes since Mikey was Dot's age, and trying to roll over, grab things and eat his hands. Now he's only got a few months left at primary school. It's crazy.

Being a single mum, I worked when I had Mikey. I was lucky enough to see him roll over for the first time and watch him walk across the room for the first time, but I missed out on the day to day things.

I always shrugged it off when people used to say, " it'll fly by, make the most of it." I laughed at them. Time doesn't go by any faster than normal. 

But I was wrong.  This week has really made me realise that time is precious, especially the time we spend with family.

 We all make a note of the special milestones our children reach, but we don't usually note down about the day that we all had a great time at the seaside, the lovely walk we took on a summer's evening, the den we built in the garden or the rainy day we built a city out of lego.

Family has always been important, but I think it is more so now. 

It might've taken me 10+ years to realise it, but time does fly by, and from now on, I'm going to make every second count.

  1. My eldest got into the secondary he wanted as well ☺ it's crazy thinking he'll be going to secondary school in September though, when did they sneakily grow up so much as I'm sure I only gave birth to him the other day??! Stevie x
