As the Sun Sets

One day this kid will be so tall, so big and a man, that I will hardly remember what he was like when he was so little, so small and just a boy.

No one has to tell me how quickly the days go by, although the hours seem long. Or how quickly the sun sets each day. How then is it so easy for me to wish the night would come sooner so they all could just go to bed and I could get a break? I know I will look back on these days with regret if I don’t treasure them.

Like watching the magic of each sun set, I will do my best to savor each passing moment with my little babies. Because my time with them will set so fast.

J.M Barrie said it best, “Nonsense. Young boys [and Pixies] should never be sent to bed. They always wake up a day older, and then before you know it, they’re grown.”
