Johnny: "Tomorrow when I grow up I’m going to fly a plane."

Nanny V: "Can I come too?"

Explaining time to a child is as mindboggling as, well, explaining time.

Seconds, day and night, weeks and years seem eternal when you are seven and race by terrifyingly fast by the time 40 hits. And then there’s the concept that life becomes a collection of decades rather than years. Aaaaarrrgh.

So revel and savour and share in the joy of timelessness that children show us. We have to be adults with responsibilities but remember the one gift you can give your children that cannot be wrapped in shiny paper and is never too indulgent, is your time.

Don’t just plan or intend. Do. And make 2014 your “Pooh” year.

"What day is it?"
"It’s today," squeaked Piglet.
"My favourite day," said Pooh.
