Not a Baby Anymore

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.

XOXO
