time flies

I reminded son that his cartoon show is about to start. He asked me, " what day is it?" I told him. He answered, "time sure flies!" Actually, he thought the day was thursday, but it was friday. Imagine him saying that when it is just a difference of one day. Looks like that the duration of one day is a long time , seen from a child's perspective.
Sometimes I wish time will pass quickly so that my kids will grow up fast.
I wonder if I am the only parent to have this wishful thinking.



  • am sure you're not the only parent feeling this way. i always say in my prayers, "poh pee my baby kwai-kwai, peng aun and gau tua harn." ;)

  • no, you are not the only one. my son is 4 & the wife often laments that he's taking his sweet time growing up - that's bcos he still demands a lot of attention.

    me, i can't wait to teach him the things i will be teaching his sis, before i forget how to do it myself!!

  • nyonyapenang,your boy is all grown up and ready to "leave the nest" , time has flown for you!

    doc, I know what you mean, was imagining you playing chess with your boy and then you forget what move you made on the chessboard, lol
    I on the other hand, might forget whether I have already added salt to the dish I am cooking lol

  • Only when he is throwing his tantrum, I will wish for him to grow up faster.

    other than that, I am enjoying myself, seeing him growing up slowly.

    I know fully well that in a few years time, he won't even have time to 'choi' me. Sigh.

  • I used to think that but now they are grown up, my son in university, my daughter is sitting for her A level and now I think..."I wish they were young again then I can correct what i did wrong with them". :)
    At the same time, I am happy they have achieved what they want so far and I am looking forward to my time with my husband doing what we want without the kids tagging along.
