Something amazes me. It always happens. I get this realization at some point. I look at some photos of my kids. And it never fails to surprise me to see how little they were at that time I took the picture! I remember the feelings. It was just like from yesterday, not from a long time. The feelings have not changed. And the way I see them is also the same. The way I saw them at that time is just exactly the way how I see them right now. Perspective. Is my perspective at their level and grows with them as well? I looked at my boy’s picture from 2013. I saw my boy then as a big kid. But when I look at his photo, he was very small and such a baby! Now, that he is a first grader, I see him as a big boy and I expect things from him especially the responsibilities he has to do. I am certain in a year or two, when I look at his pictures taken from now, I will realize again that he is still a baby! And maybe in the years to come I will still have the same feeling?
I hope I made sense and I was able to put into words what I mean. Time hops.
