I often think of the song "Cats in the Cradle" by Harry Chapin when I read some questions here on CM.
Questions like: I' m So stressed.... Why is my 5 Month old so clingy & always want's to be held all the time? Why won't my 1 year old hold thier own bottle? When will my 2 year old be able to wipe themselves? When will my Toddler be able to bathe themselves?
First, I think to myself "are you kidding"? Then I say be very careful what you wish for because time goes too fast and "why can't you enjoy & appreciate every moment when they are so little? This is such a precious time. I admit I have some stressful days but I would never wish away these golden years.
The end of the song goes:
And as I hung up the phone it occurred to me
He'd grown up just like me
My boy was just like me
I will make every effort now to appreciate every moment because very soon they will have thier own life.
Just a rant..............
