Remembering how they couldn't reach the faucet

Last night was Daughter#2's graduation from elementary school.
The highlight of the school's festivities was a grade-school version of Aristophane's play "The Birds (Ornithes)" which was applauded with enthusiasm and a variety of songs and dances presented by all 6th graders.
I looked at those kids on stage and over at Daughter#1 (aged 17, finishing high-school) hugging her first-grade teacher and wondered how fast time has gone by. It seemed like only yesterday I was combing pigtails and packing lunches for my girls and I didn't have to squeeze between the two of them, in front of the bathroom mirror, to comb my hair.
