Because one day you might forget… you are wonderful and perfect on your own. You’ve never needed me or anyone else to make your life exciting.
For you, leaves are exciting and fences are amazing.
Life is brilliant.
You make your own fun, laugh at your own jokes, and spend 2 hours at a time playing dolls all on your own.
Because I might forget… you play with “your baby” every afternoon. You give the baby stickers, kisses, and toys. You asked me yesterday: Mama, I gotta question for you? Where baby gonna sit when we go to Stew’s? I told you the baby would sit in it’s own car seat next to yours. You were happy to know you won’t have to give up your car seat.
I hope I always remember you as you are today, right now, and in this moment. It’s okay for you to grow up if you must; you’re cool kid. You’re a cool kid.
