Today she seemed like a big girl…

I felt like I went to the gym for 30 minutes and she got big. I took her to school and then to the gym daycare with her brother.   By the time we got to the bookstore she suddenly seemed like a kid. 

I wished for my magic jar to encapsulate her little voice reading stories and pretending to be Eloise on her stage at the Plaza.

She wished to hold my hand on the walk home.

It was the sort of day where I was reminded to be present. Reminded to kiss sticky hands, embrace winged glittery tulle exploding costume bags, wallow in silliness, feel at peace with a messy kitchen.

Wee ones are getting big- in the blink of an eye.
