I think a large part of the reason I have decided to have children is for the birthday parties. My little man just turned 4 and as with every year after the craziness of an over the top birthday party I begin to ask myself "where does the time go?" how is it possible that this person has been alive for four whole years, yet I can hardly remember my life with out him. Birthdays always remind me to slow down and cherish the moments the days, the months and years, because they go by all to fast. For me the milestones are a reminder to be happy and enjoy life, relax and don't stress over the little things. I love birthday time!
