12 hours ago, I had baby DD. Today she's 1.

There's no way it's been a year, so either someone has made the days shorter or someone has pressed fast forward. What the hell is going on?!?

Time usually slows down for people when they're experiencing lots of new things, so no idea.

Exactly the same thing has happened to me. Newborn. Blinked. 20 months. And the double pink line on the pregnancy test was nearly 10 weeks ago. How the fuck?

I'm middle aged and my kid goes to uni tomorrow

Fuck off grin

Five minutes ago I had a teeny tiny presume newborn, and I looked up and she's ten years old and I need to take her bra shopping. I feel you.

Presume? Preemie!!

And yet somehow the nights when they don't sleep last forever!

My gorgeous baby boy has turned into a "Kevin". Long waving arms and loads of "THAT'S SO UNFAIR!!" going on. Sob.

God yes to this. I had this little tiny bundle and now she's getting shirty with me because I don't understand the finer points of minecraft and had just had her seventh birthday. And my littlest one - my god, he went from squishy to terrible twos in the blink of an eye. Please slow down time!

I found the first baby year the longest year of my life. The following eighteen have gone in a flash. No idea where it all went. I still find baby socks.

I had a baby in Nov last year and time has dragged since then.

Just me then....

I found tiny boots the other day looking for old bits, my dd has the sand size seven feet as me.. How did that happen?!

Toocold Fri 16-Sep-16 17:22:44

Same not sand...

It gets worse I'm afraid OP the first two years were quite slow and then bang they're nearly 9yo.

And I'm 40 sniff, sniff

I brought my PFB home yesterday. He was tiny. Today, he is shaving and asking for advice about women!

My daughter was only born last year and now she's buying a house....I'm sure I grounded her!

My youngest of three moved out into his own flat. I'm officially home alone and it's so quiet. I want them all back. On the plus side housework now takes no time, hardly any cooking and washing and I get the tv remote to myself. The years have flown by

Wait til they get to teens, then watch their baby videos. It's like watching a different Person!!

DS2 was 27 yesterday and is a policeman. I think he is lying because I'm sure he only started school a couple of years ago.
DS1 was talking about when he turns 30, ridiculous idea, I'm sure I was in my 30s only yesterday.
And as for DS3 leaving on a European tour with his band yesterday- surely he was playing an ELC guitar last week??

Bearfrills Fri 16-Sep-16 17:55:39

What's that saying? The days are long but the years are short.

Yesterday I brought home a chubby little yellow faced baby with a mop of jet black hair. This morning he's a 7yo! What's more, his sister - who I swear was only born twenty minutes after him - has started full time school. My youngest, who was two lines on a test not five minutes ago, will soon be my second youngest.

Stupid time, always marching on.

I was in the special care unit with my little went girl a couple of hours ago and all of a sudden she has her own baby and is advising other women about breast-feeding! It's all very odd 😞 I also had a row only just now in Sainsbury's with my 5 year old about a sonic screwdriver he desperately wanted to buy which involved crying and he's just this minute been in to show me his A level homework. I'm looking for HG Wells personally....

My tiny premie DS,spent the first three months in hospital, time went so slow, today he has just had supper with us, his pg wife, his 21 year old daughter and her 21 month old DS

HOW

It breaks my heart, feels like the first 21 years without kids lasted for 100centuries and now all I wanna do is enjoy the little buggars and be immortal... Like is that too much to ask?!

Pondering what to get dc2 for his first birthday next month when I suddenly realised it's actually his second birthday blush
