How does it happen so quickly? One second you have a tiny baby in your arms, then suddenly he is wanting to borrow the car. And we are a slow-to-mature species—I can't imagine the agonies of a rabbit mom.
My older son turned 17 over the weekend. We barely saw him on his birthday—he had spent the night at a friend's, we had a wedding to go to, he was performing in a show at night. We texted back and forth, though, and I thought of him all day long. When everyone went to bed, I made him a little video about what it feels like to see him growing so quickly. I wanted to include a photo of him at age 17, so had to wait until he came back from his show this evening to take one. Now the video is truly a portrait of him going from 0 (plus one day) to 17 (plus one day).
