The last few years have gonewent by so fast. In fact, time has flown by since I had my son Mason. People always tell you, "tThey grow up fast," and "Time flies once you have a kid.". I never realized how true that was until I was planning my son’s third birthday. Its was like time was still for so long and now it’s in a race to the next year. I often look at Mason and think, "wWhere did the time go?". Why does time fly by so fast when you have kids? I believe it’s because now it’s not all about you. In my youth I couldn’t wait until my birthday, Christmas, summer vaccation, until I turned twenty- one or metet the love of my life.

From saying "Dada" to trying to get him to say "Mama" now he will talk from sun up to sun down. Crawling, walking, and running came before I knew it. I was now the chaser of a healthy toddler.

Time is something we can never grasp. We rush it for so many useless things and reasons and can never get it back. I know in my life I have taken time for granted not realizing it would soon catch up to me. Watching Mason grow up has taught me so many things and most importantly that time is precious so dont waist it. Hes growing more and more each day, before I know it he will be off to college or starting his career and have a family of his
