Time is relative.
If you are 1 year old, a month is 1/12th of your life. That's a long time. I am 30 years old, which makes a month 1/360th of my life.
It has nothing to do with aging, more to do with how much time you have experienced. It works with just about anything. Imagine you've been in prison for 10 years. Then imagine another person just got to prison for their first time, and they've been there a week. To you, that person was in and out before you could blink an eye, while for them it probably seemed like eternity.
Because time slows for children, in their mind it does, they have a short attention span and focus on the little things making moments last more. Human's grow out of this during high-school and in their teenage years.
When you get older you do everything slightly slower. As the years pass by you get slower still. You might not appreciate this within yourself but it is fact. So a given task takes longer but time remains the same. Therefore when a task is finished you might check the time and say 'Is it that time already'
