how is that possible? one step closer to BIG kid.
the first time i held her her head fit in my palm and her feet didn't reach the crook of my elbow. and now...
they [who are "they"] say that having a child both speeds up and slows down time. the days are long the years are quick [that's it right?]. how is it that "they" are so often so right? the rebel in me wants to declare otherwise, but i'd be lying. that's exactly how it feels.
i'd be lying if getting goodies and treats ready for a CLASSROOM [26 students!] is a breeze.
but i'd also be lying if i didn't admit that part of me really likes it.
it's an excuse to wrap, to plan, to bake. she helped put the bags together - it's a chance to talk about sharing, community, the spirit of celebration.
but in the end. it's all for that big huge smile that comes when one is 6 and a cake covered with sprinkles and a hello kitty candle is placed in front of one. yes it is.
