I remember thinking when I first had Parker how 2nd grade seemed AGES away. Like millions of ages away.
I also recall feeling like… only older people had 2nd graders. Not young people, like me.
You know what happened next? I woke up with a 2nd grader.
It happened that fast.
And that whole “older people” thing is just a misconception because clearly people, I am not old. ;/
Apparently when you are age 23 you perceive 33 as “older” status. But now that I’m 33… psssst…I think that’s such a joke.
Really…it’s all you 43 year olds that are “older”. HAHA!
KIDDING. KIDDING. KIDDING.
I’ll blink and be 43. And then I’ll have a 17 year old.
I bet I’ll still feel just as young at 43 and I’ll be writing a post about how parents of 17 year olds are still young and hip.
Because clearly they are.
I’ll probably still be giving you the “RAWR” face when I’m 10 years older too. Just a fair warning.
It’s funny how all of my parents friends would tell me, “Time will fly by so enjoy them when they are young!”
There couldn’t possibly be any more truth to that statement.
Just another sign of why we should always take the advice of more experienced “older” people. They’ve been there. They know.
