My Mum used to say to me " when you get older time passes really quickly , My two eldest boys have been married for years now . My eldest granddaughter was in visiting me the other evning and she brought her boyfriend with her , She is 17 and he is 18 , I could not be more proud of her , She has a loving way with her and she is really careing , I just looked at her and thought ( it was only yesterday I had filmed you on the video camera going to school for the first time ) , I am just so glad I have all these memories on tape ( now transferred to disc)of her and my other 3 grandchildren growing up , xx

Time does fly that is for sure. You are playing it smart in having photos to remember things by. I do not have any pictures really of my Real Dad, and wish I did. We need to cherish the memories we have, and pictures only help make them fonder.

I never thought time was moving fast enough until we had kids, and now it just doesn't slow down at all. The boys keep getting older and bigger and the year just goes by way too fast!

I remember when my daughters were babies, another Mom said to me, "Time flies, before you know it, they'll be grown up." Now my daughters are 21 and 16 and I can't believe how fast time has gone by and what great people they both have become. My younger daughter said to me the other day, "Mom, I think it's true that the older you get, the faster time goes by." Out of the mouths of babes at age 16..... :)

That's right it seems like only yesterday when I was pregnant with my first. Now he's two and soon will start pre-school and I am expecting for the second one already in April 2007...Now I just have to make sure I take as much as picture of all my kids as possible...so then I can look back and share the moment with them when they grow up...

Yes Weemam it is true time does fly. My Daughter is turning 20 next month and my Son will be 23 in April and it only seems like yesterday that I gave Birth to them and that I was teachimng them and they where learning, they started toddling, they started School and now they are working. I just want to know where the time has gone. I was only thinking about this yesterday while I was doing some work on my Book. I was also amazed how fresh the Memories still are.

yes it does seem that time does go by fast.It seems like we are getting older, and the younger ones are getting older faster, making me seem at least like i cant belive im getting this old LOL.The years go by so fast i cant belive next week is March already and it just seems like Christmas was just a couple weeks back. Summer will be here and gone before we know it. And then another year added on to all our ages. I cant remember time going this fast before LOL i guess it comes from getting older

i think time flies on a yearly basis and not on a day-to-day basis. u live everyday but u remember only a few selected days and incidents and years, so when u look back u feel as if time has flown. :)

Yes well you are right time goes so quickly we have to do what we need to do otherwise we just will not have time to do what is needed and before we know it is the next day, I have many photo's of my children and I just can't believe how the years have gone flying passed so quickly and at times it is like I have been left on some shelf somewhere lost in time. But I am thankful that all my chilren have grown up and now two of them are married and settled down and making their own families for which I am very proud.

Time goes by really fast; I agree! I have this cousin that I am veryyy close to. She turned 6 in December, and it is sooo crazy because I can very distinctly remember when she was just a baby and she stayed at her house and would wake up in the middle of the night crying. I remember getting excited because she was taking steps. And when she was learning to talk and how everything she said was soo cute. Now that she is 6 I just can't believe that 6 years have already gone by...it went so fast! It's just a lesson that we should cherish every moment that is special to us!

It goes by too fast to tell the truth. I wish time would slow down or I wish that there were more hours in a day.

I agree, Time does fly very very fast. but when we count it, it doesn't. which makes time very psychological.

LOL...I wish I have the power to make the time go slower a little so I can fully enjoy every moments I could have with my 2 little ones. Both of them, girls, aged 8 and 6 1/2 are now grade schoolers. I know that my decision to become a stay-at-home mom is a good one. While most of my friends are out busily building their career, I still have no regret having none of a good career to speak of. In a few years, I know they will be going on their way to deal with their life. Having the chance to see them growing under my care is something that I will always treasure in my heart. There are no words to describe the feelings of seeing our children. Its fulfilling.
