This morning on the way to school, Lovegirl and I were reviewing the months of the year, our various telephone numbers, and our address.  She’s got the months down, she knows our cell phone numbers – we’re working on the home number, and can recite our address with a little prompting.

All of a sudden, my mind flash-forwarded and I pictured us in the car reviewing multiplication tables instead of debating whether or not she needs a cell phone so she can have a phone number too.  (Rest assured, she does not need and will not be getting a cell phone at the ripe age of 3!)

This morning, I really realized how fast time flies – particulary when it comes to raising this precious girl of mine.  In a few years, I’ll look back at this time in her life, remembering her love of all things pink and purple, her innocent determination, and her propensity for drama with a nostalgic sigh – and wish we could relive these days. 

And I shed a few tears, drying them quickly so that I could drop her off at school and watch her walk down the hall, away from me.

“The days are long, but the years are short.”

  1. Oh yes honey. It is true.

    Yesterday, I was reviewing the same with my little girl.
    Tomorrow, she starts her Band Camp–and will be a Sophmore in High School.


  2. Aww, that’s so sweet. Yes, it’s true; they do grow up so quickly. I can’t believe that my oldest niece is 15-years-old now!! It seems like only yesterday she was a chubby happy baby. Time surely flies!
