The Time Machine We Have Been Warned About

There is a time machine that all parents get on and they don’t even know it…

There is a time machine that we have been all warned about.

There is a time machine that does not stop.

There is a time machine that takes you to 1 year, 3 years, 5, 10 or even 20 years from now…

Do you know of this time machine? This machine is called Parenthood.

Today is my youngest daughter’s 5th birthday. I am pretty sure this time machine just took me past years 3 and 4 but I don’t think I have stopped at year 5…. This has kinda hit me hard today… the past 5 years have truly flown by. I am pretty sure I will feel this every year. I also have an 8 year old daughter and I had this EXACT same feeling on her 8th birthday… I swear, the time machine skipped years 4, 5, 6, and 7…

I was warned about this. WE ALL have been warned about this. The warnings include, “don’t blink”, “time flies”, “enjoy the ride” … I hear this all the time… I am genuine when I answer, “I know, don’t remind me” … but everyone still reminds me…. because…just maybe…they are still riding in the machine?

I agree - and unfortunately, as you get older, I'm sure it speeds up 😀
