There's a popular saying about the passage of time when parenting young children, "The days are long but the years are short." It's popular because it's absolutely true! The days and nights can seem like an endless loop of laundry, crying babies, whining toddlers, and not a. lot of sleep for Mom and Dad.
Our guest on todays episode, Marissa Kovach, is a mom to four children currently 2, 4, 6, and 8 years old. She definitely knows a lot about surviving the younger years! She reminded us to take lots of pictures and videos (even of the hard things) because it's over before you know it. Then (hopefully) you can look back and laugh!
While you're in the thick of it, though, it can seem like there will never be an end to the chaos. A couple of practical tips from Marissa:
You will eventually sleep again, and believe it or not, you will miss the young years once they're gone. Be present with your kids, be careful what you say 'yes' to, and always, always get your time in God's Word (even if it's a quick Psalm or Proverb!)
