“It’s funny, don’t you think, how time seems to do a lot of things? It flies, it tells, and worst of all, it runs out.” ~ Markus Zusak, Fighting Ruben Wolfe
You grew up overnight, it feels like. Last week, you only spoke of princesses, sparkles and hearts. This week, you wanted to throw out your Disney princess sneakers and trade them in for big kid shoes. And this morning you didn't want to wear your Dora the Explorer winter bonnet because you said it was for babies. Where did my baby go, and what did you do with her? I think I blinked for a second too long, and now here you are: a little girl. No longer a baby. Before I know it, you will be a young lady, and then a woman.
I already feel you slipping away, and I am sad.
I can no longer blink or close my eyes, not even for a second. I don't want to miss a thing about you.
