Children talk about how many “sleeps” until the next exciting thing is going to happen. As a child the days, stretch on endlessly at a torturously slow pace. You ask your parents at least 40 times a day, “How many more sleeps until we get to…”
As parents those weeks, months and years fly by in an instant. A dusty scrapbook contains the snapshots of life. All too quickly, the pictures turn to drop-off-day at college. We, the parents, start counting how many sleeps until their children come home.
One more sleep until Rachel is home….just one more sleep!
