As I sit here and hold my children I can’t help but know these are the days I’ll one day look back and wish I had more . I’ll ask myself why I didn’t take more time to slow down, answer their every “why?” in a more loving manner and be more patient.
One day they’ll be too big to hold and not want to be held. One day they won’t be as excited that I’m home and I’ll miss them running, screaming “DADA!” I know deep in my soul I need to hold on to these days because truly these are the days.
Hold on to more moments and laugh more with the kids. Take time to not be interested in other things but be solely sold in to playing, laughing and being a daddy. One day I’m going to realize just how precious these moments truly were.
These are the days.
