Father told me yesterday that the first ten years after the birth of child seem like a blur, as if life sped up.

@tbeckett iiinteresting. I'm expecting or planning atm, but somehow I want to know.


Ok. But, does it slow down after that?

Or does it just accelerate for the rest of your life?

(I suspect the latter.)


@wu_lee @douginamug It does that regardless of your parenting status. Those first ten kid years are on a bullet, though.


I think that must be the Sisyphean-scale washing and tidying. That's what makes your mind go blank.


@tbeckett @wu_lee you're not exactly selling this kid rearing thing ;p But I'm grateful some kind people did it for me. Everyone pays it forward I guess.
