Survey: When your baby gets another year older, is it normal to feel a bit depressed?

My girl is turning 6 tomorrow and will be starting first grade in September. Good God, where did the time go?

Update:

Oh, I was kinda sad in February when my boy turned two. I am DONE having kids. God bless the ones who can handle a house full. It's not me.

    This is only a mild depression. Wait until she turns 30, like mine.

    I would rather her come to me with this problem, then have her shave. Shaving just increases the growth in the hairs. It like stubble on a mans face. He shaves in the morning, and by the evening her already has stubble appearing. Shaving, as you said waste time, and in the long run is more uncomfortable than waxing. I hope that when my daughter is around that age, she won't even bother shaving, because if you wax from the start of your hair removing days, the longer it takes for the hair to grow back. I can go for months w/o waxing because I've waxed since 14. I feel, as a mom that 13 is a bit young for a bikini wax, but, I wouldn't want my child to unhappy with her appearance, or self conscious about anything. Try asking your mom can you go to a salon and get waxed. Even show her your post. I would let my daughter get the bikini wax, just for the summer time, though. Ask your mom can you get it done for the summer time so you can wear you swim suits. Good luck.

    I walked out of the elementary school last week with my son and realized - that was our last time walking out of there. He will be in junior high next year. I almost fell apart.

    It is incredibly emotional. My baby boy turns 11 y.o. in 17 days. It hasn't gotten easier thus far and I think it never will.

    Big hugs for you for being such a great parent.

    I often feel like this, my son has not long turned 5 and it's just like 'where have those 5 years gone?' I get afraid that I'm gonna forget his younger years (it feels like the baby years just flashed by) and really just don't want him to get any older....selfish maybe, but understandable imo.

    It is a bitter sweet moment. The time does fly by far too fast. Happy Birthday to your baby girl, she will always be your baby no matter how old she gets.

    Most people say that they feel sad because it means that when their kids get a year older that they are getting a year older.

    it's always sad. and every year on the first day of school, i'd be a crying mess. even now, my daughter's 27, i still cry when she leaves on a trip. or maybe it's the fact that i'm 52...that's another reason to feel like cryin'!

    Getting older is a good thing. There is only one alternative to growing old.
