My kid is still very young. Often veteran mothers will get that dreamy, far-away look in their eyes and tell me to enjoy this time with my little one because it goes so fast. And I nod and half-agree with them. Yes, it does, sometimes. There are parts of it that are already going way too fast and there are parts that are not going anywhere near fast enough.
This is how (in my experience) it normally plays out.

And to all the parents who tell me “it goes so fast,” please know that yes, you are right. It does go so fast. I don’t always feel like hearing that, but I promise I do know it. A few weeks ago I wrote about it here.
