I’m living in a time warp these days. Things have sped up and all I see is a blur of events, things that I should be taking notice of but can’t because I’m too tired, too busy, too something. I’d say that the Peanut is growing right before my very eyes, but she isn’t. I just literally blink and she’s bigger, hitting milestone after milestone, cruising past them like mile-markers on the highway.
It’s easier to see when she’s getting bigger though than it is for the Kid. I take it for granted how self sufficient he is, how grown up. How he’s such a wonderful help to me some days and then others it’s like he’s a sullen teenager (at 3.5 years old omfg).
I take it for granted that he’s a big boy.
But he’s not grown up yet… and he’s still growing. And he’s still hitting milestones too. Milestones that while I haven’t missed them, I haven’t applauded them either.
Milestones like this…
And most DEFINITELY this.
Don’t worry kiddo… it may be whizzing by, but I’m not missing it. Not for the world.
