It all happened sooo fast. When you are a new parent, all zombie-like from breast-feeding every ten minutes and swaying side to side with a wailing baby the rest of the time, people try to tell you how quickly it all passes. But it is impossible to imagine that one day your baby will grow up, get a job and move out. There are times, especially during the teen years, when you fantasize about that day. Stop. Enjoy every second. Turn off the tv, put down your phone and bake a cake with your child. Or play Candyland for the eight millionth time. You won’t regret it.
