Five Minute Friday - already

Every Friday we unite for five minutes. Only five minutes, that's all we get, that's all we have. And then, right where we are, no edits or second thoughts, we publish those words. This week, we write on already.

You're in high school...already.
You're in middle school...already.
We are one year away from you driving and one year away from college visits, yes, already.
We are talking about what makes you uncomfortable at school and how to get stronger.
We're already there.

You have friends that mean the world and back to you.
You have too many friends to keep track of because just like dad, everyone likes you monkey.
You're into a handful of very specific things.
You're into anything with a ball.
We're already figuring out our schedules around your schedules.

We're able to have date nights again, and now, no babysitter...already.
We're remembering why we love each other again and now, able to remember couplehood...already.
We're already finding our way out of the fog and back into each other's arms.

Pearl has white around her eyes already, her age is starting to show.
She can't keep up as long on our runs, she isn't pulling as hard with puppies up ahead.
She's already getting tired.

I've already been running my company for 8 years, 4 full-time years.
It's already been 4 years since I left the agency that raised me.

We're already in our mid-40s.
I'm already feeling the actual physical changes of my age.
My hair is getting white streaks on the sides.
My body's metabolism is slowing way the hell down.
My heat index is higher and my sleeping is a bit off.
You're feeling them too.
You're more achy. White spots in your beard.
We're already middle-aged.

It's already time to start thinking about our next chapters.
Our little family window is already starting to slowly close.
We're already out of the fog of parenting and into the second to last chapter.
It's already time to start thinking about the next chapters in this life of ours.
