Illustration Friday - Time

Story Time Passing

read to me mommy

When I think of "time" the first thought that jumps into my head is of time passing. Watching my kids I'm excruciatingly aware of this: I always think "they won't do that forever." It doesn't help that time can pass in the blink of an eye - one day you have a newborn the next day he's starting kindergarten - as my pediatrician recently told me "the nights are long, the years are short."

Here a boy asks his mom to read to him, but she sees that in the time it takes him to crawl into her lap he has already grown into a teenager.

You are very good. I have an almost one year old and I can't believe it. Feels like yesterday I was pregnant with her and could barely get up and move around.
