Blink and They Grow, Blink Twice and Twins Grow

4 years ago

Whether you are blessed with one child, multiple children, or multiples, one thing is true: They grow too quickly. Stephanie Snowe recently wrote about being a mom of twins. Her children, a boy and a girl, are now fifteen, so she's got some years of getting it right under her belt. And yet, like most of us, she's caught off guard by how quickly time has gone by.

She shares:

The only thing that didn't double was time.

That's the most unfair part of all of this, I suppose. I just wish we had more time. I blinked my eyes and today they are fifteen. I've started thinking about drivers ed, dating, college. I said the other day, "We have the perfect amount of chairs in our dining room for when the Boy and Girl get married!" and Jason looked at me like I have three heads. I should note that Jason still thinks the children are six or something and said something about flash cards the other day. He doesn't see what I see.
