“The days are long but the years are short”

Someone, I can’t remember who, recently said this to me and boy did it strike a chord. Nash turned two today and I can’t for the life of me think where those few years have gone. Being a stay-at-home parent the days can seem so long: the early mornings, the dog walks, the tantrums, the refusals of food I could go on. That is not to say that we don’t have a lot of fun but 12 solids hours with little ones is tough. So, if the days drag how do the years fly? I guess that is why they say enjoy every day.

Happy birthday to the sweetest boy I know. I always wished for a blonde-haired blue-eyed boy and I definitely got that.

    Well I used to say the same thing, now look at you my beautiful baby girl, a wife and mother, and yes the day may be seem long, but they do fly! Not every mother have a choice to be a stay home mom. The trick is to enjoy and make every moment memorable, and one thing to always remember! you rule and not the two cutes and adorable Prince Charming! Those days will be gone before you know it, just don’t forget to have me time, happy mummy makes happy children. From where I stand you and Aaron are doing a fabulous job. You get a golden shiny starπŸŒŸβœ¨β­οΈβœ¨βœ¨πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ from me. Love Nana Yam.
