30 months and counting

TLM turned 2 1/2 yesterday. In just 6 months time she'll officially be a pre-schooler, and she's already halfway to starting primary school! If I keep up this line of thinking, we can forget about moving into a house with more outdoor play space because in eight years she'll be spending most of her time at the mall with her tweenie girlfriends.

It's much less depressing to mark the passing of time with your children's development, than with your own growing decreptitude.

Amen Sister though when your child has grown taller then you...you just can't forget how old you have gotten.

and that won't be long, either, if she's inherited her daddy's height (he's 6'2" and I'm 5') :-)

nigel: yeah. You must be my longest-running reader. Perhaps I should award you a prize for that. Hmmm...
