Time Flies When You’re Having Fun


I was musing today about something…

Sometimes my son gets this look on his face where he looks more like a kid than a baby.  He’s 9 months old, so he’s still very much a baby, but more frequently I can see on his face how he might look as a toddler.  It’s hard to explain, but my husband feels the same way.  The bottom line is, time flies when you’re having fun, and I’m having the time of my life watching my kids grow up!

I got a little overtired and frustrated with them once during our last road trip, and I was thinking to myself, ok, no more doing this for at least five years.  Then it hit me – in five years, my kids will be 14, 10, 7, and 5!  No more little little ones, in just a short half of a decade!

So I asked my husband the question – why is time flying so fast?  Does it fly faster as I get older?  More quickly when I have more kids?  Is it just because our youngest is a boy and we’re used to how girls grow up after having 3 of those?  I just don’t know, but as hard as the work is with 4 little ones, 2 still in diapers, I still wish they’d stay little longer – I really do.

Sunrise, sunset, quickly flow the  years…

  1. one season following another laden with happiness…. and tears.

    Don’t we all. My oldest niece and nephew are now teenagers. I still remember being on the road and making calls everyday around Shelby’s birth. And going to Toledo from BG to see Joshua who had to be in the hospital for a week or so. Could not be released until he got over the 5lb mark… or something like that. He was soooo tiny.

  2. “Time Flies When You’re Having Fun” is the understatement of the year. I do wish it would slow down sometimes. You’re right, the kids are growing way too fast. I can still remember vividly when you and Kim were little. I did enjoy watching you grow up and now I get to watch my grandchildren grow up. I think they call it “the circle of life”.

  3. It’s the circle of life/and it moves us all/ through despair and hope/ through faith and love… 🙂 Dunno what it is… good tunes, good times
