Just when I start to feel like the sand is slipping through my fingers and my babies are growing up too fast, something like this happens:
She followed me into the bathroom (because: OF COURSE I can't pee in peace) after school one day, snuggled into her cozy blanket. I did my business and went to waste a few split seconds on my phone to chill after work, figuring she'd follow me out. Before long I realized she hadn't come out...I went to check on her and there she was, sound asleep on the bathroom floor.
And then today.
Curled up on her chair in her bedroom, fast asleep while waiting to go to her brother's hockey game (THAT is another post for another day. Hockey, that is...).
These moments ground me...they make me realize that while I am sad that my babies are growing so fast, that they are still just that: My babies.
They always will be.
See you tomorrow!
