“Rent” asks the question how do you measure a year? They suggest you measure it in “in daylight, in sunsets, in midnights, in cups of coffee, in inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife.”
That sounds satisfactory to me. But how do you measure two years? On August 27, 2009 Emily started preschool. She was excited. And maybe a little nervous.
This morning, she jumped out of the car triumphantly. Headed in for her “Last Day” party! Lucky for me she did not roll her eyes when I said “Go stand by the sign so I can take your picture.” Almost two years ago to the day.
That’s how I’d measure two years. Two years = two bricks had she been standing up straight.
