you get all the time you like...
because their time is your time.
When they get bigger...
... and their world expands
beyond the boarder of ... you,
they start to claim their time
and you have to let them,
because, really... it's their time.
You had yours.
The scary thing is... there are so many parents that squander their hold on their children's time.
My parents didn't.
And I will never run out of time to give back to them.
There-in lay the model from which I draw some guidance as a parent.
