On a different note, I found myself in a reflective mood over the weekend. And it struck me that I can't really believe that The Eight Year Old is, in fact, eight years old already. Parents are often heard saying how quickly the time goes by when you have children and it really is true. What I find even harder to get my head around though, is that by the time The Baby is eight years old, The Eight Year Old will be The Sixteen Year Old. Now that is a scary thought.
