Last night at dinner, we were discussing Daughter D's upcoming birthday. She stopped us in our tracks by remarking, "I'll be 9 - that's halfway to 18!"
That is simply not possible.
18 is college, driving, dating, voting, moving away from home.
So, really? We're halfway there?
There is a small part of me that simply can't fathom a world that isn't centered on my children. Good thing we have 3 cats.
