Today, unbelievably, is my daughter's 19th birthday. Gad, how can that be? I'd better check the calendar again.
*I* don't feel any different than I did nearly two decades ago. Well, other than I'm a lot thinner. Yep, the years have flown past.
Flown? More like flashed past me at the frickin' speed of light.
I always chuckled at my parents telling me the exact same thing (well, without using expletives as far as I know)... about how fast the years go. One day, perhaps daughter will continue the tradition by reciting those very same words to her child. And maybe HER kid won't roll her eyes at her.
But probably not.
Rolling eyes aside, I will admit I am so lucky to have such a close relationship with my daughter. I can see so many of my traits (all good) and some of hubby's (all bad, natch) rolled up into one person.
We have pretty good conversations too; except for a recent one. I have no qualms in declaring this *The Most Confusing Conversation Ever. I was trying to remember an actor's name and I just couldn't grasp the right words. Obviously.
Me: You know, whathisname.
Me: That guy, you know, from that show.
Me: He also went out with whatzherface.
Me: Oh nevermind.
Yep, I guess I have to admit it. I *AM* getting older too.
