John Gruber, 5 years ago:
A decade or so from now, when, say, I’m waiting for my son to come home from college for his winter break, and, when he does, he wants to spend his time going out with his friends — how much will I be willing to pay then to be able to go back in time, for one day, to now, when he’s eight years old, he wants to go to movies and play games and build Lego kits with me, and he believes in magic?
This captures my current sentiments perfectly. My daughter is 4 and my son is 20 months old. I couldn’t be more aware of how fast everything is going and how precious these moments will be, not too long from now.
