Flowers bloom at set seed in just weeks. Shoes are outgrown in just weeks. Enjoy it, it goes so fast, mothers and grandmothers advise. Disagreements, tears, long days, teething, fevers, growth spurts, stubbornness, hungry not hungry, tired not napping, they last so long and then not really.
I couldn't tell you how yesterday was different than today. I can tell you how last year was different than this year. I can tell you my son stopped screaming during diaper changes sometime before six months or so and then started again a month ago. If I didn't write that, would I remember?
