Cherish it she said, ”the first year will fly”,
It will all pass you by in the blink of an eye.
What once you wished for is too soon just a memory,
I tell you my girl, you know you can trust me.
As a mother of seven I know when I say,
You will long for the time you are wishing away.
As the days pass you by remember I said,
One day, too soon, he won’t crawl in your bed.
He will be an adult, with a family maybe,
You will wonder what happened your once little baby.
I promise you though its a love that is piled,
A mother’s love is eternal for her baby child.
My grandmother always says to me that the first year of a babies life flies by. I never realised how right she was until this month, as I am planning Aidan’s first birthday. Although the days can feel like weeks, the weeks pass by in minutes. I wanted to write something to remind me of her wise words and help me to remember to cherish every minute.
