Girl I Know: Can you believe (insert her daughter’s name here) is already 2 years old?
Me: I know! It seems like just yesterday you were pregnant with her.
Girl I Know: I was looking at pictures from when we took her home from the hospital and I couldn’t believe she used to be so tiny!
Me: Oh my goodness, I can TOTALLY relate. Just the other day I was looking at Nala’s kitten pictures and was all “You’re not a baby anymore, are you?!?” Totally relate.
By the look on her face, I’m thinking she didn’t think it was quite the same thing. I’m not sure what bothered her the most. That I think parenting a cat is in any way similar to parenting a human (It so is). Or that I look at my cat’s kitten pictures (I so do).
Either way, I’d like to say, “Sweetheart, back off. My cat’s Super.”
