Many years ago, when my oldest son was just a baby, I came across an ad for Carter’s (I think). It had several simple sentences counting the moments in time that all add up to one year. At the end it states “Don’t blink.”
I nodded, sagely. Having already been through the first few months of rapid growth and change with my son, I was obviously already an expert on how fast time flew.
And then I blinked.
He turns 17 today.
He now stands over 6 feet tall and has a mop of curly hair sitting on his head. His voice is deeper than his dad’s and he has his first job interview tomorrow afternoon.
I can’t even.
