why?

Why, when our children are young, do we long for the day that they can talk, and then when they are 5 wish they would just shut up stop talking for 5 minutes.


Why, while in the midst of our work week, do we wish the hours would fly by, and then when we look in the mirror wonder where the years have gone.


Why, when our children are young, do we push them towards being independent, and then when they are 12 wish that they needed us more.


Why, when we are young, do we fight the naps that we are told we have to take, and then when we are adults wish that someone would tell us to go lie down in the middle of the day.

  1. I don't know why we want time to fly...cause you're correct, then we grieve it's uncermonious passing!
