Time on the March

It does appear that time is moving faster, and I'm not sure if it's because I'm getting older, or because I'm not going into an office each day to work (or because my hair is getting longer). I've been a full-time dad for over two months now, and it really only seems like it's been about half of that. I can't believe that I've been hanging out with my daughter for that long.

It appears that time is going to keep moving like this, from what I've heard from other parents that have chosen to stay at home while their children are young. They've told me that it doesn't slow down, and with the rate that Marion is learning and changing, I really can't see it slowing for me. She has a world of things to learn each day, and I'm here to help her, so there's a world of new thngs for me to do each day.

My brain likes it this way. I've never had the attention span required to do the same job over and over, so I've become bored with my previous jobs pretty quickly. Raising a child is an ever-changing job, and it's well suited for the way that I think, or at least I think it is. I'm ready to move on, ready to tackle crawling up the stairs even when we've just got the crawling in a straight line under control.

Marion and I have things to learn, we're ready to pull the cat's tail, ready to wave bye-bye, and we're ready for the future.

Time only moves faster. It was just yesterday that I was a stay at home mom with three kids. Now I am a stay at home farmer with more than four different kinds of critters to take care of.

Ya' can't slow things down.
