The little old lady in the grocery store is right. They grow up all too quickly. The days will slip away when you’re not looking. So what should we do?

  • put down the magazine
  • turn off the computer
  • let the voice mail get it
  • ignore the tweets


  • take a walk
  • play a game
  • ride a bike
  • build a snowman
  • bake a cake
  • make a memory
  • redeem the day

  1. So true! This post brought a little tear to my eye. Thanks for the reminder that the things that seem so important to me every day (cooking, cleaning, laundry) really can wait and we need to enjoy our little ones while they are still little.

  2. So, so true. My little baby boy has kept me up for two nights now however when a friend sympathised how awful it was I completely disagreed after all to wish this away is to wish babyhood away. Mind you I might not be so reflective if this goes on for a third night!

  3. Thank you for posting! I have been praying about this very situation and asking God to help me see my children not the piles of clothes, or emails, or FB comments, or the posts I need to write.

  4. And while you are redeeming those days, take that photo, write about it and put it into a scrapbook. It will create and keep creating wonderful memories.
