Six-word Saturday


Wish I could freeze-frame these days.

My children are three and five. I love these ages! They're both so curious and fun, and the things they say are often so wise (and sometimes hilarious). We have such a good time together.

While I know that each stage of a child's life has beautiful moments, sometimes I wish I could freeze time right now, during these wonderful, early childhood days.

Wishing you a weekend of marvelous memories!

  1. I remember thinking similar things too! I've forgotten most of the wise and amusing comments now, which is such a shame - I wish I had written them down.

  2. Oh, yes! You should take photos of the kids and create a great quote book of all the hilarious and wise things they say.

    1. I've been writing down most of their wise and hilarious comments. Now I just need to find the time to record them in the memory journals I bought. :)

  3. Those magical years pass so quickly, and before you know it the kids are all grown! Make lots of wonderful memories together that you all can treasure for years and years to come!

    1. Thanks. The years really are short. My mom says that I was in kindergarten one day and the next day I was married. That's how quickly time seems to go. So bittersweet...

  6. Yes, I like children at this age. Greetings.

  7. They are fun at that age. I just wish they would sleep past 6 Am sometimes.

    1. I'm lucky that mine have always been good sleepers. It's nearly 10:30 a.m. here right now, and they're still not awake. I'll have to go upstairs and get them soon.

      Have a nice weekend!

  8. Do enjoy them! Each stage is a good one (even the tough teen ones). It would be neat if we could freeze frame time indeed!

  9. So true! We are always quoting what our kids said way back when. I can't wait to have grandkids...that would be my Saturday 6.
    Happy Weekend!

    1. I'm all too familiar with those days. Hope it got better for you. :)

  14. I hear you :) I wish I could turn back the clock and enjoy it all over.

  15. Enjoy these moments to the max, Dana! :D

  16. Make sure you write down some of the cute things they say and be sure to take tons of photos!

    1. I make sure I do those things every day. I don't wanna miss a thing—as Aerosmith said. ;)

      Delete
  17. Like others have suggested, you should write down the cute things. I keep a notebook to records the conversations between my students, the cute antics of my pets, and even special couple moments. Otherwise, they're too easily forgotten!

    1. That's so true. I write things down because I know my mind is a sieve. :)

  18. Yes, these are great years. I can't wait to read what you write 10 years from now when they're 13 and 15. HA! Don't start thinking about that now -- it'll ruin what's left of the weekend. :-)

    1. I think I'll take your advice and not let myself think about that! ;)

  19. So true! Before you know it they'll be teens...

  20. Awww - so sweet! Though I'm sure you have days which you wish would just pass by, they will be teenagers and moody before you know it. Treasure those cute words!

  22. I know exactly how you feel. They grow up so fast.

  23. I absolutely agree with you! I adored my son at the toddler/preschool age. Of course, at 41 I still adore him, though some of the things he now does are not the least bit cute, ha!

    1. Too funny! I'm willing to bet that my parents can say the same thing about me. :)

      Delete
  24. Probably so, Dana. There is some pleasure in knowing my son repeating the process with my grandson.

  25. I understand your feeling.
    We have grandchildren from 16 down to 5.

    Cheers!

  26. My granddaughters are 5 and 2 and helped me celebrate an early birthday with an ice cream cake and disco dancing after dinner. I understand completely.

    1. Sounds like a wonderful memory! Kids are amazing. :)

  27. It's good that you realise it now.

    We videoed a lot but we still missed stuff and forgot even more. I wish I'd blogged back then because I'd have written it all down.

    1. I've forgotten a lot of it, too. That makes me sad...

    1. That's a good way to describe it. It is like homesickness.

      Have a great week!
