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 Ava was born. That’s 41% of that time is gone.
