Don't dare blink

One minute you are gazing down at your first-born, only days old. Next minute (or so it feels), your first-born is moving up the grades at school at a frightening pace.

When I was young, some days seemed to go on forever. I remember often saying to my parents "I'm bored, what can I do?" Now when I hear my daughter saying the same thing, I shake my head and try to remember what it felt like to be bored. Life seems so jam-packed these days. Never enough hours in the day to complete that list.

I only hope that I'm not so busy, and so immersed in life that I miss the little things. The special moments, as my children continue to grow at the speed of light. I don't want it feel like only another 5 minutes has passed, and my first-born is moving out, and living her life. I want the time to observe and absorb.

Am I the only one that feels that life is going so much faster as I get older? Please tell me you are nodding along with me. What is your secret to taking it all in or slowing it down?
