Living with my eight year old is like living with a senior citizen. She might be the slowest person on Earth. She gets so immersed in whatever she’s doing that it takes her an extra hour to…put her sandals on…brush her teeth…make a ponytail. If she weren’t so short I would probably get her a walker. And then I remember that she still calls me “mama.” And she still makes rocket ships out of amazon boxes. And she still thinks the tooth fairy has an email account. She’s an incredibly passionate, curious, and innocent second grader and I wish I could just stop the music and freeze. That said, I can barely recall her voice as a toddler and I can’t remember a time when she wasn’t tearing through 450 page books. I learned about TimeCapsules way too late, as I would have been all over this type of thing when my kids were little. Inspired by Andy Warhol (who apparently kept a box near his desk to collect bits of his daily life), this kit is just that – an opportunity to store away those little things that you forget so quickly. It certainly won’t make your kid move any faster, but it might help slow down time.
