Infants to babies to toddler to children to teenagers and then adults. Adults with babies.
It goes by so fast. We hear that all of the time. And yet the days are so long. But when we look back we wish for those long days. Because the years are short and so very fast.
Most of us do not walk around with a camera. Like a real camera. We carry our phones. But its not really the same. One day your babies will be getting ready to welcome their babies and wonder about their childhood. Your pregnancy. Then those babies' babies will wonder about their life with Nana and Papa. Or Grandma and Grandpa. Will you whip out your phone and show them the "wall"? Will the wall still be there? Or will it be something new?
I believe they will ask for the books filled with pictures they can take out and hold. Giggle about and have snacks and coffee at the table while you go way back to those moments that you were so exhausted but they make you smile. The infamous 4x6s and the prints on the walls. The ones in your favorite frames hung along the staircase leading up the stairs to the comfortable beds, the toys and the quiet moments. Not all quiet, sometimes loud and filled with laughter, music you do not understand, and posters all over the walls. Those moments. Those pictures. Not attached to a screen or a device. But a real life wall. A real human connection.
