Hands up if you were like me and rolled your eyes everytime someone said "they grow up so fast" when you had a newborn - and now you have a 2+ year old and are thinking "HOLY CRAP, they grow up WAAYY too fast!!"

  • Wait till they are getting ready to go to college and you think back to what seems like yesterday when you first took them to kindergarten.

  • When I was younger and my sons were little I thought people were CRAZY when they said that. And now...my oldest is going to be 24 in Aug, & he & his wife will be married 3 years in Sept., my 22yo (just turned in Jan.) has a 3yo son, my 19yo graduates in May and leaves for Army basic in July (he'll be 20 in Aug.) & my 18yo graduates in May & starts college in August (he'll be 19 in Dec.). In 6 mos. the only time I will have my kids at home is when my older 3 visit or when my youngest comes hom on weekend & school breaks from college (his school is 1 1/2 hours away). I look at them all and wonder "where did the time go" and often I think, "wow, those people WERE RIGHT, it DID blink by!". It's CRAZY!
