If we had coffee today I would tell you…
It’s hard to believe another year has gone by.
That my sweet baby is turning Four today.
I want to say that I wish I could kick time to the curb, but when it comes to my love for celebrating birthdays, it makes me look forward to celebrating this milestone with her.
But ummm… time, I’ll be kicking you to the curb on Monday.
How is it possible to be so torn between loving watching your children grow up and hating every second of it?
Am I crazy?
Tonight I sat on the couch blowing up balloons to kick start the birthday weekend.
Tomorrow night I’ll be attempting to be a professional crepe paper banner creator.
I’m pretty sure Saturday when I’m dressing her up in her Tinkerbell costume and putting on her make up for her dance recital then rushing home to put up all the decorations, it’ll hit me that no matter what I do she’s going to keep getting older.
I have such a love/hate relationship with that thought.
It’s been a wild and crazy year. Katelyn started her first year of preschool, fell in love with all things Disney, decided her hair needs to be a long as Repunzel’s (thank you again Disney), has become independent, fallen more in love with Jesus, sings praise songs all day long, recites scripture, loves church, loves her friends, lives in dresses, hates her hair brushed and demands to accessorize every outfit. Today she carried her purse all day while out shopping.
I’m so excited to see how much more she will grow and change and turn into the young girl God wants her to be.
Here’s my only request:
Could I just ask one favor to my friend Mr. Time?
Can we loose the sass this year?
How has your week been this week? If we were having coffee what would you share with me?
