Grow Slowly, Little One
This is my baby girl's first ATV. It was (is) an outside activity we can do in all sorts of weather. This was her training wheels. Where she learned about safe operation of a four-wheeler.
And racing old people.
That was a couple of years ago. We're saying bye to the little blue ATV this week, because my baby girl has outgrown it. "It's for babies, Mama. I need a big girl ride."
Yep, that's my baby. Wears my high heels, and they fit. But she still fits on my lap.
On the phone to her friends, talking about boys, but she still runs through the kitchen like a heathen, shouting "Love you Mama!"
We sit and discuss books we're reading. That's really awesome. But she still likes to tickle wrestle.
I know it's gonna happen- she's going to grow up no matter how much I kick and scream. But I hope she does it really, really, really, slowly.
Grow slowly, Little One, grow slowly.
