You only get 18 summers with your babies...

Make them count. Cliche I know. But so much truth. When I get stressed with the mundane tasks of every day life, when my to do list is piling up, when I wish I had a free moment to myself, I remember this phrase and it shifts my perspective.

The work will always be there,

the house will never stay clean,

the laundry can get done another day.

But you won't have this summer again with your little one.

They'll be twice this size next year.

So take a moment, even if it's just a small one, and soak in today mama.

You'll thank me later.
