The Early Years

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Having children is no easy task. Personally, I am merely an auntie and I wondered at times how I would survive. During the first few weeks we  think: how cute, we want to hold them all the time, hearing them cry breaks our heart, we dote and dote and dote. Unfortunately those feelings won’t last long, they wear off quicker than you’d imagine. Instead our thoughts become: when will they become more independent, we long for the day when they will sleep through the night, we no longer want to hold them all the time – we need time to continue with our daily tasks, when will they use the potty – cleaning diapers is torture. You might think yourself to be bad parents for having these thoughts but kids are challenging.

During these times, time keeps on ticking. It never stops and those innocent babies grow; growing happens quickly; sooner than you think they are little characters of they own. It is only when this happens that you take a moment to reflect. It’s at this time you begin to wonder where did the time go? If only you could have those earlier days back. If you think twice about it however, it’s really not what you want at all.
