OK this was before we left the house and I just had to throw in a picture of her all dressed up because after the program she immediately headed for the chocolate cupcakes and the punch and she stood still for about 30 seconds over the course of a half hour because she was high on sugar.
Ready to take on the world!
Last night at bedtime I curled up in Miss A’s twin bed alongside her and told her I loved her so much and that she was my baby girl. I inhaled the sweet smell of bedtime–freshly washed hair and bubble gum toothpaste.
She looked over her shoulder and said, “I’ll always be your baby girl…even when I’m a teenager.”
“I’m going to have to write that down Miss A, before I forget it.”
“I won’t let you forget mommy. I’ll always be your baby girl, even when I’m a teenager. Even when I’m a grownup.”
And then my heart and mind expanded ten fold.
Yes you will always be my baby girl my sweet girl. Yes you will.
