Before you become a parent, I don’t think the saying “Kids grow up WAY TOO FAST” really means all that much to you. Especially when you’re a kid yourself, and you just can’t wait to grow up. You roll your eyes, thinking ‘what the hell are they talking about?’.. or maybe that was just me because I used to think all kids were tremendous brats (I still think about 80% are but that’s at least an improvement.)
Once you have your first child, and you watch them VERY quickly go from infant to baby to toddler right before your eyes, in what seems like only a millisecond- that term hits home, hard. It’s actually really sad. Your baby isn’t a baby for very long. Every day they change and grow and morph into something new. Probably why baby fever kicks in so early with a lot of women. Even though babies are screaming puking balls of flesh, once that stage is over- it’s over, and it’s sad to see it go even if it was the hardest thing you’ve ever dealt with.
When I go through and I look at how much Holden has changed in the short time he’s been on this earth, it totally freaks me out. Even month to month you can see him changing from baby to little boy. I don’t think there’s an ounce of baby left in him.. or at least in the way he looks.
Let’s take a trip down memory lane
He almost doesn’t even look like the same child at all. How insanely weird is that?
And soon i’ll be starting that sad process of watching my baby grow up way too fast ALL over again.
Some kids know multiple languages, or are doing complex math problems, but I just said "hello" to my 8 year old and he responded with "is it me you're looking for?" so who's the real winner here?
@AtypicalMiriam I am frightening *and* tall 😂
@AtypicalMiriam He fears me. I am the only female I this house. All penis people live in fear.
Me: Just ripped the ass out of my pants. I mean, they were OLD pants, but I feel like it's because I was bigger than I was 10 years ago. 10yo: Everyone's bigger than they were 10 years ago! I am! Me: YOU WERE AN INFANT 10 YEARS AGO 10yo: ... 10yo: *slowly backs out of room*
Person on tv: Age is just a number! 10yo: Yeah, a number that pulls you closer to death.
