I remember thinking it was annoying when my parents would start conversations with “when you were little.”

Now I get it. I look at my grown children and I still see them in their matching Easter outfits when she was three and he was just shy of his second birthday. (The girl refers to the boy’s Easter bunny shorts with carrot suspenders as his “beat-me-up” outfit – but I digress.)

It’s just hard for me to think of them as grown ups. They’re my children.
