Where does it go? The years. The minutes, I know exactly where they go. They are spent washing hands and brushing teeth, zipping coats and tying shoelaces, setting the table and cleaning the table, giving kisses and getting hugs. But the year, in an instant it is gone and as easily as you recall laying in the hospital bed staring into the eyes of your newborn you are now watching him blow out a candle that says 4.
I have a good idea of what comes next. But I have a really good idea of what has passed and what will never happen again.
Today we’ll celebrate this minute when you are still mostly 3 but quickly becoming 4. As you turn from pink to blue, from Penny to Lucas.
