“It’s going by fast, buddy,” I confided in my son, as I cuddled him after reading our nightly chapter of Harry Potter (We’re on Book 7. Third reading.) I wasn’t talking about the books, but he would have understood, either way.

Each night, for years, we have read from the series, Harry, Ron and Hermione growing up, years flying by with each flip of the page. And I realize more and more that the same is so true for my own little witch and wizard.

We were laughing over old photos earlier that evening, and while I wistfully saw little toddler versions of my kids, remembering birthday parties and trips to the snow, my son noticed that I looked different, too. “You look like a kid, mommy!” Well, hardly. But yes. Younger.

It’s going by fast.

It makes me want to slow down dinners – that precious time together, all of us. I feel lucky that we can eat dinner together each night, but lately I have felt like the dinner pace has been speeding up, a race to the finish line, where dessert is meeting them on the podium.

There’s one good thing about pasta – it takes time to twirl.
