i'm a big kid now
"Time flies". This tiny, little, two word sentence is one that I hear quite frequently. I've always known this to be true, that time seems to go by so quickly, but that truth seems to scream at me every day as I watch my kids grow. It seems like they are doing new things and developing new skills daily. I feel like if I blink I will miss something.
Aside from being completely out of shape and finding the multiple white hairs that keep popping up on my head as if they belong there, I still feel like I'm 18. Well okay, maybe 22. As I think back over the last 20 some-odd years that have flown by, I remember little defining moments that seem to prove that I really am an adult now. Some important, some insignificant. Most of them make sense. Some, like this shower curtain, do not. This is the first cloth shower curtain I have ever owned (Thanks, Jenny!). All of my shower curtains up to this point have been plastic or vinyl. But this, this cloth shower curtain just screams adult-ish, doesn't it? I can't explain it. I don't know why this is a defining moment, it just is. =)
