I used to think that my kids would never be in school all day.
My friend used to tell me
that it would be here before I knew it.
I would think to myself that she was wrong
and it would never happen.
well... she was right and I blinked.
I used to think that one day my child would sit beside me in the car
and they would actually grow out of that car seat
and we would sit together and have real conversations
not the ones with my singsongbabytalk voice.
again, I blinked.
I used to think that one day I would have a daughter and do her hair in the mirror.
Today she looked at herself and said she looked like a teenager.
It's okay she said, I'm not a teenager.
I'm trying not to blink.
