Friday’s Photo Finish and A Brave Girl

scootKids are so much better at growing up than parents are at letting them grow up. We call them “baby” until they are…..well, we’ll never stop.

But grow up they do, and watching them try new things and take on new experiences “by MYSELF!” are often bittersweet. You LOVE seeing them grow into this awesome person they are becoming.

Yet you know that each day they are pulling, pulling, pulling away from being your baby.

In our case, Sweets is scooting away.

She got a scooter for her birthday and that is all she wants to do. Tongue out, helmet on- and she’s off! A couple of times she has fallen and has told me, “Mommy, when I fall I just get right back up and try again. Because I am brave.”

Yes, yes you are my baby.

Have a great crazy day!
