Take a look at this beautiful animation by Jeff Scher. It is so hard to believe that these moments that are so important as parents will not be remembered by our children in any way. . . .
What continues to amaze me about parenting is how it simultaneously expands and condenses time. The days can seem long, but the months fly by. The kids seem to get older in spurts. One day you notice that he isn’t the same guy he was two weeks ago, he’s someone older and new, but he still wants you to unwrap his cheese stick.
It’s hard to believe they won’t remember any of this in their rush to grow up, but I know they won’t. This film is a collection of fleeting glimpses and little moments that would otherwise escape forever.
