    Any way to get a gender neutral one for those of us who have little ones of both genders? I think I need this as a constant reminder in my living room when Iโ€™m being pulled in multiple directions. ๐Ÿ˜œ

  22. Nisha

    Dear Collin, Collinโ€™s Wonderful team and my fellow Hipsters, Thank you so very much for this post. Iโ€™m am so very sorry if what Iโ€™m about to say causes sadness/grief, as itโ€™s not my intention whatsoever, but this post just touched me in more ways than one. After loosing three at very early/late stages, I was blessed with another three and while theyโ€™re still very young, my little ones have, indeed, grown up a bit faster than Iโ€™d have liked. With that said, Iโ€™ll be printing three of these out and will be sitting with each one this weekend and adding our special little touch! So excited and **fingers crossed** I remain strong and collected, as my oldest in a softy like myself, and weโ€™ll end up sitting there wiping away each others tears lol โ˜บ๏ธ

    • Lori

      Nisha, that’s absolutely beautiful.

    • Lina D

      Thanks for sharing Nisha! I’m sorry for your loss and glad you can enjoy this printable.

  23. Jamie

    Thank you! Decorating the nursery and this will go great. Makes me a little emotional. They grow up so fast!

    • Lina D

      Oh great! You’re welcome ๐Ÿ˜€

  24. shammerle

    Life is short. Kids grow up fast. They may be difficult, at whatever age, and they are constant and always there. If yr day to day with them overwhelms sometimes, try to take a step back, take a deep breath or a few, clear your head, calm down somehow, and enjoy the heck out of them. This poem helps keep things in perspective.

    • Lina D

      Great advice! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

  25. AZinOZ

    So cute! Thank you.

    • Lina D

      You’re so welcome! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

  26. Bethany

    I love these, but I know if I printed them out, I would cry even more than I already do! Itโ€™s so hard watching my baby boy grow so fast!
