They say when someone travels at the speed of light, they age slower than the people back on Earth. Returning to earth is virtually travelling forward in time for them, since they are younger (in other words, have aged less) than the people left behind on Earth. People without kids are like that, moving at the speed of light, so that when they land after being away for a year or two, they are surprised to find the children and the parents have aged so much ("She's four already?!), while they have aged hardly at all.
