Our oldest child turns 15 in a few days.
I remember the day she was born, the day she first laughed out loud, when she started walking and when she painted the walls in our living room when we looked away. Purple everywhere!
I’m so proud of this kid, who she is, how hard she works and what she cares about.
But it hit me like a ton of bricks that in 3years there is a very good chance she will be moving out and going to college.
And if she is anything like most kids this age, this is a time of becoming more independent, not less.
So the next three years will go faster than the last three.
I will kiss her on her birthday like I do every day I see her. But I’m going to do my best to enjoy the next three years with her. I know it’s not the end of our relationship but it will be an end to a chapter that I’m trying to deal with.
And in the meantime if any startups out there know how to slow down time I’m interested in hearing from you :)
