Live In The Moment More…

“The biggest mistake I made as a parent is the one that most of us make…I did not live in the moment enough.
This is particularly clear now that the moment is gone, captured only in photographs. There is one picture of my three children sitting on in the grass on a quilt in the shadow of the swing set on a summer day, ages six, four and one. And I wish I could remember what we ate, and what we talked about, and how they sounded, and how they looked when they slept that night. I wish I had not been in such a hurry to get on to the next thing: dinner, bath, book, bed. I wish I had treasued the doing a little more and the getting it done a little less.” ~Anna Quindlen
