Yes she is!
Yes she is!
Decided to pierce her ears this weekend.
(My father would tell me that children aged three don't get to decide...)
But regardless -she decided and we went.
She soldiered it...like soldiered it!
She'll tell you her big rock star cousin "cried like a baby" when she got her second set of earrings last weekend but that is only a little true.
They are good girls...like really good little girls.
A lot of thinking and watching my kids lately. I'm not sure what it is...sometimes I feel like their living is just packed with wisdom and insight...watching my daughter get ready for the world is pretty heavy.
I should define "heavy" because when I say it my Mom mistakes it for "depressed" ...but what I mean simply is "really intense"...like when you hear people say...
"where does the time go???"
Man...it's gone...(like really gone!)
But gracefully still going on!
I overheard my husband giving an unauthorized pep talk to my daughter on having to start kindergarten this year and the importance of being a "big girl".
I thought to myself..."are you kidding me?"
I wanted to stop him...she didn't need to hear about it...let her live a little...let the kid be three...don't rush her dude!
But when I took a look around the corner her eyes were wider than wide...and so ready...
this growing up thing is turning out to be quite the trip...
Have you ever had to fight the urge to hold on?
