940 Saturdays. Everyday #116

There are 940 Saturdays in a childhood. How do you feel about that?
According to a new book No Regrets Parenting, there are apparently only 940 Saturdays between the time your child is born and she goes off to college. If your kid is 5, you've already cashed in 260. 940 Saturdays, you guys! -- Via Jezebel

Part of me feels pressure -- like, time is limited! Must schedule stuff to do! -- but the better part of me realizes that 940 Saturdays is plenty.

My Saturdays were pretty quiet and boring, and yet I think I had a wonderful childhood.

But it doesn't hurt to keep in mind that time, including childhood, is limited.
