Boy, oh boy, how sweet she is. She is getting so big I can't even stand it. She continues to prove to me how big she is getting and I just want to say, "can't you stay little just a little longer??"
About three weeks ago when putting her to bed she asked me to turn off her night light after she fell asleep. I have no problem with a night light because I know what it is like to be scared of the dark, but since she brought it up, I wanted to see if she was ready to get rid of the night light for good. So I responded, "Why don't I just turn it off right now and you can just use the light from the hall?" She hesitated just a little, so I said, "Want to try it? If you do, I will get you a slurpee after school tomorrow." Her response, "OK!" I was shocked. So I turned the night light off and it hasn't been turned on since. Not only has it not been on, last weekend when we cleaned out her room, she took it out of her wall and said that we should give it to someone who didn't have the money to buy one. Well, ok then!
No more night lights, starting to not look like a little girl, acting more and more grown up...I can't handle it. What I do love is that she isn't so "big" that she can't snuggle or give loves. She hasn't lost any of her heart. She is the most loving, kind little girl I know and I am so blessed to have such a great little girl in my life!
