Time Passes

5 Aug

It’s hard to believe it’s August 5th already.  Just yesterday, my daughter had her last day of school and here we are, planning for the start of the new school year which is less than five weeks away.  We went from excitement for summer to the thrill of school clothes shopping.

Not that this year is any different from the rest, but it seems to me each passing year goes by faster than the last.  Maybe it’s because we are having a busy summer?  Maybe it’s because my daughter is getting older and involved in more activities?  I’m not sure what it is.  All I know is I want it to slow down.

I feel like I’m getting exponentially older as my daughter is increasing in age by twelve months.  It seems like her one kid year equals my five “mature” adult years and it’s not fair!  Why can’t we age a month for every 12 months they grow up?  I think that’s reasonable, isn’t it?

Before we know it, the summer will be over, school will begin, the leaves will change, and my daughter will turn eight.  It’s crazy enough she is starting second grade but what’s worse is that she’s almost as tall as me!  She’s slowly approaching chin level and that’s too close for comfort.  I better get her in line before she towers over me and I have to point my finger in the air to discipline her!
