Nine hundred and thirty-six weeks! If you count that’s the number of weeks from birth to their 18th birthday; this is the time we are given to raise our children. At first, this seems like a long time, I was 23 when I had my first child so 18 years was the majority of my life. But recently as I realized how far along I am with my oldest that time doesn’t seem like enough. So far 382 weeks have passed since A was born.
I try to be intentional as a parent but I don’t think I have yet invested 41% of the time or energy into raising A that I should. There are so many more things I have wanted to do with her as she grows. It’s been 3 years I have been saying “This summer we will go camping together at Ricketts Glen State Park.
Have you ever stopped to consider how far along you are in raising your child? It’s an eye opener when you stop and put numbers to the process; when you count the weeks. Actually, to make this easy for you I created a little tool so you can estimate how much time is left to raise your child.
