As a mother, I have conflicting emotions about time. Time is equal parts painfully slow and exhilaratingly fast. Time is simultaneously arbitrary and invaluably important. Time can go from zero to sixty and then back to zero within seconds. Time is both indescribably painful and indescribably lovely. Time never ceases to confuse and amuse me as a mother.
My oldest was a colicky baby. He cried a lot, and I mean A LOT. I remember staring at my watch at 2 am bouncing him on a yoga ball one night to keep him from screaming. Time seemed to mock me it was going so slow. The minutes ticked along like hours. Fast forward (and I use the word fast deliberately) five years and that restless, colicky, sweet and chubby baby is a five-year old kid. A tall, lean, smart, athletic boy. It seems like both a million years ago and just yesterday he was learning to take his first calf like steps. Now I watch him play soccer. He runs with the speed of a future Olympic athlete. It’s hard to remember he once couldn’t take a single step without my assistance. How is time so cruel yet so beautiful to us mothers? Motherhood is a never-ending roller coaster ride of begging time to speed up and the next minute pleading with it to slow down.
As a mother, time is so important and valuable to me. Quality time with my children is so priceless it has no monetary value. Time is also a functional component of my life as a mother. We need to be to school on time, to swim lessons on time, to church on time… the list never ends. Time seems to always be on my mind, which is why I absolutely adore my wooden Jord Watch. Not only is it a beautifully designed and flawlessly constructed fashion accessory but it minds the minutes for me so I can enjoy the moments of motherhood.
