Poem for Parents
This lovely poem is from the Slimy Bookworm blog:
When I was a baby, time crawled
When I was a child, time walked
When I became an adult, time ran
When I became old, time flew
It reminds me of my favorite quote about parenting, “The Days are Long but the Years Are Short.” I don’t know who this quote is attributed to.
What is your favorite quote or poem about time and raising children?
p.s. A few other good ones I found:
“To be in your children’s memories tomorrow, you have to be in their lives today”
“Kids spell love T-I-M-E.”
– John Crudele
“What a child doesn’t receive he can seldom later give.”
– P.D. James
