I was looking at some milestones today, and came to realize:
When I signed up at WebmasterWorld in 2003, I'd been married two years, and we had a newborn baby, just a few months old.
Today she's approaching 10 years old, as tall as my chin, and she's sassy and moody and dresses herself goth.
When I took the position of Moderator here 4 years ago, crotchling number two was crawling about in diapers. Now she's five, writes full sentences, reads books by herself, and yesterday she made her own scrambled eggs, with no help.
Where does the time go?
Why have they grown up so much, when I haven't aged at all?
Mine is married with kids. I told a good ( much younger ) friend of mine who I have known since he was 18.. before you know it your daughter will have left school. 18 years later he says "you were right".
My child is of course, in my mind , still 6-10 years old.
I always remember the phone calls "Dad come and pick me up" me: "It's 10:00 in the evening" child: "Well you wouldn't want me to walk home alone at this time of night..."
