Parents of small kids hear this all the time: "It goes by so fast." Often, the person saying it sounds a bit wistful, like they wish they'd slowed down a bit so it would've felt like less of a blur.
So take a second to throw some snow around. Bang on the pots with a spoon. Do a silly dance; build a wobbly tower; put on a cape.
Make time for fun. Make time to be silly. Make time to enjoy childhood, because it'll go by in a blur.
Make time to play.

If you break your leg, nobody tells you to go get some sunshine and you'll feel all better.
As part of its annual campaign to raise awareness and stamp out the stigma surrounding mental illness, Bell pledges 5 cents to a variety of mental-health programs for every text message, tweet, share and other messages related to #BellLetsTalk today. So get tweeting. Remember, there are 3 Ls in the hashtag.
