Where did the time go?

It was one of those days. 

No, I don't mean terrible horrible, no good, very bad type of days.  It was more of where did the time go?

This morning when I looked at the clock, it was already time to go to work.  I didn't even get to finish up my breakfast with the kids.

Then before you know it, they day is gone and there's still a pile of paperwork on my desk. I'm late in getting home.

And they want books.  I say sure, until I look at the time.  My goodness, how could it be dinner time already? Books will have to be after dinner.

And then it's dinner and dessert (of course).

And then look at the time...we need to squeeze in baths. Books after bath.

And then I find myself with two squeaky clean kids. We finally sit down to read books and it's bedtime. Not fair.  I want at least another 12 hours with these guys before I have to put them to bed.  How is it time for bed already?!  I mean I *just* started my day.

I start wallowing. 

Stop it, Jackie.  Enjoy the time you have.  

Every little bit counts. Be thankful for what you have rather than wishing the day was different, I tell myself.  So, today, that is what I'm aiming to do.


  1. That has to be so hard. I know you want to spend as much time with them as you possibly can, especially while they are growing up. Balance is tough to achieve!

  2. Must be tough w/ those little cuties! I know how time passes for me, and I am past the "little ones" stage ;) What a darling picture.. savor the time w/ them! -Tammy
