Time Flies When you Have a Toddler!

Like most working people I have always thought that weekends go by too fast.  Before, I had so many planned social engagements and telephone calls, but so little time.

I’m not sure what happened to all of those social engagements.  I think that I have fallen off of a lot of invite lists because I have declined too many times.  Apparently the rest of the world was still living and partying while I was pregnant, giving birth and learning to be a mom.  My blog follower Anthony Stemke (http://gritsandgroceries.blogspot.com)  says that I am a very good mom.  That’s one of the things I enjoy about blogging.  You make contacts with people who validate you.  Seeing how I haven’t had another performance appraisal for my mom job, I am going with Andrew’s assessment!

Back to the time thing.  Now, I no longer just lament how fast weekends fly.  I am also increasingly amazed at how fast entire weeks and months just zoom by in a blink of an eye.  I think it’s the breastfeeding, pumping, diaper changing, baby baths, cleaning sweet potatoes off of the floor after they have been flung by a toddler who has reached her limit.  There are also my daily appearances at work, board meetings, and my need to bathe and feed myself.  As my mom says, motherhood is more than a notion!

Anyway, in case the end of January has snuck up on you too, I thought I’d point out that there are less than 48 hours left in the first month of 2012.  Where did the time go?! 

If you are behind on your goals/resolutions/plans like I am.  You better hurry up! Then again, let’s make a pact and resolve not to beat ourselves up about coming in late on a few of our goals.  We may have been delayed because of something wonderful like watching our child walk for the first time, playing blocks or reading stories.  Time flies so you have to be sure to catch those special moments.

Here’s to February!
