How is It? {SOL 6.07.16}

How is it that the days are long, but the years are short?

How is it that it seems like just yesterday that I followed the school bus on the first day of kindergarten, but now you drove yourself to your graduation?

How is it that I used to tuck you into bed at night, but now I am often asleep before you even get home?

How is it that I used to give you a weekly allowance, but now you are working two jobs to save up money for college?

How is it that you used to have to stand on a stool to brush your teeth, but now you tower over me at well above 6'?

How is it that I once knew where you were every second of the day, but now you stay in touch via text messages from time to time?

How is it that I loved you so much on the day you were born, but now love you more than I ever imagined possible?

How is it?

  4. When you find the answer to your question, share please. I'm still wondering and my son is 34. Yikes!

  9. This one made me all weepy. My guys are in their 30's and I still wonder where the time has gone, and I still love them a bit more every day.
