How time passes.
10 years ago ..... I had a 9 year old and the day off. New Years Eve 1999. I spent part of the day with my son and one of his friends celebrating the last day of the 20th century (although technically it wasn't). We tracked the New Years on a globe and watched a bunch of New Years fireworks - Sydney, Australia, Egypt, London.
I don't want to ask my son if he remembers; it would probably embarrass him. And he had a falling out with this friend early in high school.
Nothing like tracking your life through what you did with your children and when to really make you feel how quickly time passes, and how you need to treasure all the things you do with your young children. Because one day they will have their own lives.
Now we are about to enter a new decade. May it be a better one than this first decade of the 21st century.
Happy New Year!
