Time flies even when it doesn't. Cuz, you know, even though there are those situations that feel like they crawl, like it took a year to live through a day, at the end of the week or the month or the year, it's still over and you look back and wonder, where the hell did the time go?

Today is the natal day of the eldest. Today, she turns 20, and enters into her 21st year of life. Like other parents, I look back and remember her first step, he first day of kindergarten, her first boyfriend, and wonder when she grew up, and when I got old.

Of course, it is gratifying to hear from people at work and all around me, "No way! You aren't old enough to have a 20 year old daughter!" Heh. Cute.

It's a little disturbing to realize that I think of the 80's as something that just happened a little while ago, because they're recent history to be even though I'm moving from saying, "I remember 20 years ago when..." to "I remember 30 years ago..."

Holy crap. When the hell did I get this old?

I think this is one of the reasons that I just *can't* read the Supernatural fic. I like the show, but Sam and Dean are just *kids*, barely older than my daughter, and I just can't *think* about them *like that*. John and Rodney, okay. They are my peers. Miss Parker and Jarod? Yeah. Buffy and Spike? Well, that came out - holy crap! Buffy came out twelve years ago! Dear god, where the hell has the time gone? In any case, I didn't feel skeevy about that pairing because I like the movie, and it came out when I was in my 20's and still felt like I wasn't so far beyond HS as to be unable to relate.

Feh. Feh feh feh.

So. Great, I survived 20 years of parenthood. *SHE* survived 20 years of me. Let the bells ring and the banners fly.

I'd still like to turn back the clock a little bit. She was pretty cute when she was about... oh, 7. I liked that age.

I think I need a drink.
