"The days are long, but the years are short."

The title quote, talking about motherhood, came from JLK's blog, which I just spent a minute catching up with upon noticing she's been posting again.

It made me catch my breath with a few tears welling up, because as my daughter turned one a couple of weeks ago, and I've just been revisiting some of those long, LOOOONG early days reading Dr. O's posts, it describes the bittersweetness, oh, so well.

  1. My only one is turning 5 today except that he's feeling miserably sick with a flu that has been lingering on for weeks. It makes me feel sad, at times, and wondering if I will ever reach my turning sixty. Can't stand seeing him feeling lousy.

  2. This is an excellent quote, although I like Becca's amendment. Every time my daughter hits a milestone (9 months just a few days ago) I am taken aback by just how much time has flown by. I always thought sleep deprivation made time pass more slowly.
