    grown up

    Are these sentences correct?

    Your children have grown up so much that I cannot recognize them. It makes me realize how fast time goes so fast.

    Re: grown up

    Thomas, please read your second sentence carefully and see if you can find a mistake in it.

    I have found the mistake in the second sentence. Am I right?

    "It makes me realize how fast time go so fast."

    Re: grown up

    Yes ... or '...how (the) time goes so fast'.

    Only use 'fast' once.
