Today, my six year old daughters -- and I can only say that for another 12 more days -- brought home an ABC end of the school year countdown.
It starts on Thursday. So that means there are only 28 more days left of school.
"You will only be first graders for 28 more days," I thought out loud.
Tears filled my eyes.
"Don't cry, Mommy," M. said as she held my face. "You are going to make me cry."
"I just can't believe it. You are almost ... I can't even say it ... second graders."
Big eyes stared my way.
"You don't understand now, but time just goes way too fast."
