Willow was playing at the playground. That girl loves the slide. As she was climbing the stairs for the 54th consecutive time to begin her euphoric decent, a little girl told her dad that she wanted to go down the slide after the baby. The dad laughed at her daughter and said, “honey, that’s not a baby”.
I looked at him and gave him a polite grin. Underneath I was angry and confused.
Not a baby! WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?!!!!
And then I saw this picture of her. And I knew he was right. She’s not a baby anymore.
I’m about to be that mom that cries at every stage of their child’s life. I’ll be in the closet with the kleenex.
