Six-word Saturday


Oldest turns six on Thursday. Wow!

I can't believe six years have passed so quickly. I look at my son sometimes and still see him as the baby I brought home from the hospital. I think time really does go by faster once we have children.

Wishing you a weekend full of happy memories. ☺

  2. Happy Birthday!!
    I know... time flies by so fast! I'm even amazed that it's mid February already. It still feels like the new year just started off. I think the older we get the faster it goes though. My fellow students are teenagers/in their early twenties and they still seem to have all the time lol.
    Anyway... have a great weekend and a lovely partytime with your son!

  3. This childless old geezer is here to say: Trust me, time flies faster every year, regardless of your parenthood status.

    Wish him a happy birthday for me.

  7. Happy birthday to your little guy. Mine is just over a year and a half and I wish I could already slow it down a bit - well, except during diaper-changing times... I suspect I won't miss those days when they're gone :\

  8. Happy early birthday to your little guy Dana!! You are right, time does go by so fast! I always say to young moms treasure each and every day, even the hard ones, because it does go by so fast!!!

  10. A party? Mine was always shy when he was small, but I remember some wonderful times. I still try to keep track of those other little boys who were his classmates.

    1. We're having a family party on Thursday, and then next Saturday, we've hosting a party with his friends at one of the local bounce houses. It's so loud there, but I know that he and his friends will have a good time. :)
