In the Blink of an Eye

It seems like we got lost in the routine of day to day, and suddenly our kids aren't babies any more. I can't believe Owen will be going to Kindergarten next year. On vacation I was amazed to see how much my cousin's daughter Hannah had grown up. I can remember the day she was born, holding her, playing with her, buying her cute little outfits and buckling her into my convertible and driving off (OMG- who let me drive off at 19 with a toddler in my car)! I was amazed to see that Hannah Banana is now a young woman. Now I know, "young woman" makes you think of a grainy school film that attempts to explain periods and the growing need to use deoderant. Anyway, what struck me the most was her voice- she doesn't sound like a child, and at nearly 17, she isn't. She has become a beautiful, funny, smart and caring "young woman."

And she loves sushi- yuck! We took her to Mt. Fuji Inn and she ordered a great big platter of sushi, complete with octopus. And she ate every last stinky piece and loved it!
