  1. Thanks so much for linking the article from Mama Smiles. I’ve seen the other one linked on Facebook so many times, I was beginning to wonder if I was the only one who actually appreciates the old ladies’ reminders to soak up every moment because they pass too quickly.

  2. I should read one of these posts at least once a day! Recently a found a picture of my now five year old that I swear was just taken- in the picture she was two! I have it on my desk to remind me every day of how fast this is all going!

    And I see that you have an e-course coming up? Details please :)

  3. These were well timed. I recently told a first-time-pregnant friend, who is terrified at becoming a parent and is not sure she will like it one bit, the following because she just hopes that once the baby is born her attitude will change: There will be days and times you have to just decide to be happy and live in the moment, there will be times that you will not be happy no matter what anyone says, and there will be times that you will just look at your baby and get an inexpressable and indescribable feeling of joy.

    I think both of these articles are well done and cover the spectrum of this. Although, the Momtastic one seems to treat parenting as an end-goal when it seems to me that that’s not quite how it works. It does seem important to realize and accept that not every moment will be glorious and fulfilling. I appreciate the second articles view of living the moment. I too often get caught up with to-do lists or watching the clock.

    It so often seems to come back to balance, doesn’t it?

  4. oops, I meant Momastery, not Momtastic
