Let them be little...

I know we as parents hear this a lot, but isn't it the truth: kids grow up so fast. They are only little once.  I don't know about any of you out there, but there sure is a lot of pressure to quickly raise your child infant into a pint size adult and stat!  Don't get me wrong- I look forward to seeing my children be self sufficient and be able to take care of themselves.  I especially appreciate their independence when I am in a rush to get out the door and need them to get dressed and ready so I can get the little other little one ready. But sometimes- like when I am looking back through scrapbooks at baby pictures- I realize just how quickly time has gone by and why oh why is there such a rush to make my children grow up  faster then they have to?  They only get to be little once so this is a reminder for me to be a bit more patient. To tie shoes when they ask me to. To let them play a little longer and be sillier a little more.  Maybe it's a reminder for you too!
