So I've gotten really into "Renegade Mama"--I feel like if I was better writer and ballsy, I would write sassy blogs with heart like her.
Found this one about a blog to her soon to be 12 year old daughter. Totally got me because I look at this little girl and don't want her to grow up! I love that she smiles at me, recognizes my voice, doesn't shush me when I sing, and while I look forward to seeing the woman she becomes, I already hurt for the pain and tough times I know she'll go through. I also selfishly hurt for myself because I know that I will have to let go and accept one day that she isn't this little being helplessly dependent on me.
Yeah, that totally has me boo-hooing. I think about this ALL the time, especially lately. My daughter just turned 4, but she and I are SO close, she is my best little friend and I hate knowing how that is going to change someday. I think that's one reason it's been so hard lately with her attitude and the issues she is going through, it's almost like a little bit of foreshadowing for the future. It's a great article and a great reminder that this time with our little ones is so terribly fleeting.
