This is how many Saturdays between the day your child is born and the day he or she turns 18.

18 years seems like such a long time but when you look at it as only 6,570 days that you have before they are practically adults, going to college and moving out, it really changes the perspective.
Love them, cherish them and if you give them at least 2 hugs a day that is 13,140 hugs…doesn’t seem like enough to me so I’m going to give more than 2 a day!
I’m ending this post now before I start crying.
