The Secret To Measuring Time

Jordan-Brian Age 5

Jordan-Brian Age 5

Einstein said, “Space and time are modes by which we think, not conditions under which we live.” Really?  Then he must not have paid much attention to his son, because our children are a constant reminder that time is quickly passing.

I witnessed a dose of time this weekend when I turned around to face two teenage boys in front of me.  Cousins raised around each other since birth now stand as tall as me.

This year they start high school.

No wonder I see the crowsfeet around my eyes and slight wisps of gray hair.

Another thing has changed with time.  They’ve gone from being a couple of gigglers to too cool for school teenagers.

Now if I could just get Brian to put his dirty socks in the hamper before he is 25 and my face is hanging somewhere under my neck.

Until next time –

    When your kids are young you feel young. When your kids are past 18 you feel old. Thus after 18 we parents do many a stupid thing.
