Five Minute Friday: Long

Long.  “The days are long, but the years are short,” was a saying I heard often while at home with my two squirts both under the age of three.  Looking back, there was so much truth to this saying.  Juggling two kiddos’ sleep schedules with one having feedings every three hours and the other with three hour naps in the afternoon, I now realize I was awake far more hours than I was asleep;  the days were definitely long.  Now, though, with both girls above the age of five, those long days seemed to have passed in a flash.  Having a wall of pictures in our house, I relive those long days daily through my memory, but often wish those days were still here.


During one of those long days, I met a woman who changed the meaning of those long, sometimes lonely days.  With her two children being the same age as mine, we filled these long days with a lot of laughter and continue to do so to this day.  I am grateful for her in my life, and on this day, her birthday, I wish her a long life filled with much love.

  1. Friends are so important to success in these toddler years. I too have a key friend who is seeing me through these years. May God bless both you ladies and provide newer moms that you can encourage with your testimony.

  2. Such a great reminder! I have three little ones also, plus working a part-time job. Lots to juggle. Days are long, very long at times, but yes the laughter and fun is abundant. Great post 🙂

  3. You do have a lot to juggle. I went back to work last year when my youngest entered kindergarten. Isn’t it amazing how one can go with hardly any sleep for such a long stretch? Have a great day!
