  • It does, the older you get the faster it goes, this is why try to enjoy the here and now because I am painfully aware at how quickly it comes and goes.

  • I often wonder. Sometimes, I try to think back if I liked it better when they were little. I've decided it's a toss up. When they were little at least I knew where they were and what they were doing, and I could tuck them in every night. Now that they're older, I not only worry about them, but their children as well. I just think a mother's entire life is spent worrying! Anyway, the years do fly. I tell my daughter that because, as you know, sometimes if feels overwhelming!

  • Happy Birthday to your daughter!

    The years just fly by so fast and it never seemed that way growing up, but it seems to have hit warp speed since I became a mother and grandmother.

  • My oldest turns 10 on Monday. My youngest won't be born for another 2 1/2 weeks...that is kind of wierding me out.
