My first posts about coming change, discovering I was going to be a father, refer to a time six years ago. The time horizon for my blog is now defined: Six years back and many, many years forward. As mentioned in the About page, the motivation for this blog is personal. The re-telling of life’s experiences and adventures only serves to enhance their enjoyment. It’s only just begun, but the process of remembering back and thinking ahead will be personally rewarding for sure.
Last month, my daughter started Kindergarten. She started Kindergarten? How is that possible? My wife and I wife have watched her grow from Baby Girl to Little Girl to Big Girl. She is growing up so fast and so well. We are so proud of the responsible, increasingly self sufficient person she is becoming. She is ready, excited and having fun at school.
When a friend, especially one who lives elsewhere, inquires about my daughter, it goes something like this: “How’s your daughter? She must be two or three by now.” Hearing she started Kindergarten recently elicits disbelief. “How is that possible?” Having watched every day of it, i know how possible, how real it all is. But I still pinch myself too, wondering how is that possible.
