The daddy blogger in me can’t seem to get off the subject of time this week. My daughter is like a mirror and a time machine and a psychiatrist all in one little package. She shows me what I was like as a baby, reminds me how old I am and provides me with thoughts of reflection and self-analysis all day every day.
When I am not busy analyzing myself, I think about how much the world has changed since I was her age. Did you know that Pearl Jam and Nirvana will seem older to her than Simon & Garfunkel and Led Zeppelin seemed to me? Pearl Jam and Nirvana! These bands still seem fairly new to me until I recall that Pearl Jam is currently celebrating their 20th anniversary.
19 years before Annie
Only 5 years before me!
Only 7 years before me!
