Yup! I have many days when I feel just like this! Whether you are with your child 4 hours a day or (what feels like) 40 hours, these moments are bound to occur monthly, weekly, or even hourly! That’s when I seek the counsel of my hubby, my mom, and even a few images and videos I’ve seen during my 5 years of motherhood. Here are two that have made lasting imprints in recent months!
1) How quickly time flies…
“Birth to 12 years in 2 minutes 45 seconds” by filmmaker Frans Hofmeester
2) …when you’re having fun!
“Don’t Carpe Diem” by Glennon Melton, The Huffington Post
“There are two different types of time. Chronos time is what we live in. It’s regular time, it’s one minute at a time, it’s staring down the clock till bedtime time, it’s ten excruciating minutes in the Target line time, it’s four screaming minutes in time out time, it’s two hours till daddy gets home time. Chronos is the hard, slow passing time we parents often live in.
Then there’s Kairos time. Kairos is God’s time. It’s time outside of time. It’s metaphysical time. It’s those magical moments in which time stands still. I have a few of those moments each day. And I cherish them.”
