Quick quick, there it goes

How does it happen? Where does time go? Why is it that it seems to take about 14 hours to get through dinner, but you blink and your baby is no longer a baby. Sure... she's still got the 'baby fat' and the chubby little cheeks, but that's about where the similarities end. Now she's off at school for 8 hours a day. Now she speaks her mind and has opinions and *corrects* me!

It's such a wonderful feeling when you fall in love with your kids all over again. You realize what astonishing little people they are. There is actually thought that goes on behind that gaze of theirs. I honestly take them for granted. When they have an off day or are acting up, I am so quick to reprimand and 'correct' - but when it comes right down to it... those days are few and far between. I probably have more 'off' days than they do.

Danny is in the process of losing another tooth. He's scared. I don't know why. All I can think of is that it's because his others haven't come in yet. Poor guy is going to look strange when he finally does get teeth. We're going on three years now without front teeth. Thank heaven he's cute!

I can't even remember when Danny was a baby. It seems like soooo long ago. Too long ago.
Guess I'll have to give them extra kisses when they get home!

How does time fly so quickly?

  1. Sistah, I was thinking the very same thing today. Gillian has the day off for Yom Kippur and she's been my shadow on all my errands and chores. As she gets older, she's with me less and less, so why am I twitching and breathing heavy wishing for a break. I guess I'm just selfish like that... or indeed it is time for me to start taking medication for my OCD.
    Thank you for reminding me to step back from the chaos to soak in the child. They won't be like this much longer.
