She's growing up
First of all my baby girl has her first loose tooth! I wasn't prepared for how that would hit me, but seriously I got all misty eyed, what the hell is wrong with me? She is soooo proud of it and announces that she now "feels like she is ready for college!" I told her to back it on up and tackle Kindergarten first.
So that was two days ago. Today she is leaving the basement to go upstairs and as she is going up the stairs I say don't forget to close the door honey. She rolls her eyes and closes the door. Five minutes later she comes back downstairs and calmly and maturely says "Mom can you please not me remind me to shut the doors anymore? I hear it a lot all day from you and GeeGee about the doors and it really gets me frustrated because I know to close the doors and it makes me feel like you don't trust me." I take a deep breath tell her sure I can do that, and contemplate how it is that my five year old handles this situation with more maturity and grace than I handle my 93 year old Nana-in law nagging me....maybe she is ready for college.
So this post is to my Princess Mikayla Rosie (yes I have given in she is a princess despite my sure knowledge she would be a tomboy just like me). She has grown into such a lovely young girl and is ready to lose her first tooth and enter the big wide world of public school in August, where has the time gone?!?
