When it was my turn, there was one thought that kept running through my mind: slow down and appreciate this time because it passes so quickly.
I was the only woman there who had raised a child to adulthood and therefore had a different perspective on motherhood. Diapers and burping are important, but those issues are fleeting. What I wanted this new mom to know is that her child will grow up so fast she won't know what hit her. I told her to take lots of pictures and pause often just to look at and hold her child. Sooner than she thinks, she will find herself rummaging through a box full of the tiny clothes she received that day, wondering where the time went.
