I brought the girls to storytime today at the library and I sat next to another mom. She had 10m old twin girls and a 3 year old boy. She pointed to Haven and asked "How old is she? Is she 3 or is she 4?" I probably looked at her like I didn't understand English and was like "Her?!" (touching Haven). And she's like "Yeah." I'm like "Ummm.... she's 1 and she'll be 2 at the end of this month." And she said "No way!!! She is so tall and seems so much older!!" (to her credit though, Haven was taller than her 3 year old son, LOL!! And spoke better) Oh Haven, what am I going to do with you.... you are breaking my heart!!
I thought it was odd when we brought Venily in for registration that everyone kept asking if Haven was going to school (the youngest children that go to that school are supposed to be 4!). I just figured that these people must not have children or have any concept of how old children are (some people are like that)! But this woman HAD children!!! I was seriously getting teary-eyed thinking about it while driving home from the library (and even now, lol). Kids grow up sooooo fast and she is just determined to speed up the process and make it even harder on me! :(
