|How time flies and kids grow up|

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?

My youngest turned sixteen last month. The bad news; he got his license last week. The good news; I just sent him out to pick up a pizza. :)

My son graduated from college a couple of years ago. This is unnerving, because I would be prepared to take an oath that he was five last week :(

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..."
But then I'm still 20 ...mentally

My youngest commented on how young policemen were looking last Sunday!

Treasure them while you have them! Some parents (me, for example) have no surviving children due to accident or collateral urban violence.
