The day is about to end, and you are about to watch your favorite show but you are too exhausted and you decide to sleep anyway. Carpools, lunch bags, after-school activities, dinner, homework, bathtime, bedtime. All on top of your own job and the other realities of adulthood.
Your life seems like an endless loop of tasks and you find yourself in the cycle of just having left with energy to drag yourself to bed and sleep so that you can wake up in time to start the same day again. Each day with young kids feels like a week, each week like a month. Yet as every birthday passes, the years seem to be streaking by at warp speed.
You have to realize that time flies very fast and you can’t control it. Instead of worrying about how you can add more minutes to your life, focus on making all the moments more memorable with your little ones. There is always a loophole with parents when they decide to spend quality time with their children. Assigning 2 hours of the day might seem like a proper way to do it – at the playground, an afternoon at the movies, dinner at a restaurant. But the truth is that quality time may occur when you least expect it—yes, at the nature preserve, but also in your drawing room while just about to have dinner.

Spending time with your family is not a chore, it is a privilege. To have people in your life who love you immensely is a blessing. Do not take your loved ones for granted. You might regret not spending time with your little one’s once they are old enough. This is the best time to make wonderful memories and live your life to the fullest.
