Can Anybody Tell Me?
Can anybody tell me what happened to this sweet little baby girl? Because I haven't seen her for a while. I really miss having her around. I miss trying to get that curly, unruly hair to look half way presentable. I miss aligning up the seams in her little socks so her little toes would be "comferbul". I miss singing the Barney song with her, you know, "I love you, you love me, we're a happy family...." I miss having to tell her a thousand times a day "Let's use our quiet voice". I miss those sweet chubby and sometimes sticky little arms around my neck. I miss burying my face into her warm hair and smelling the scent of purity and sweetness mixed with a little bit of sweat and whatever we ate for dinner. I miss the days of finding the sippy cup lids she hid in her room so she could sneak her sippy cup to bed with her - when she wasn't supposed to. I miss asking her if she is a mommy's girl or a daddy's girl and watching the incredible indecision spread across her face as she tried to come up with a diplomatic answer at just two years of age. I miss my baby.
And suddenly there is this beautiful, intelligent, and loads of fun young miss hanging around our house who is telling me I need to be planning her graduation party in just a few weeks.
What's up with that?
Geesh, next thing you know she's going to be telling me something like "Mom, I met this guy...."
