As each day passes and I see Tiny Princess develop I must stop and be thankful for the moment.
Yes, I want her to have her vaccines and for flu season to be over so we can return to church, or go to a crowded place.
Yes, I want her to be strong enough to hold her head up. Every mom wants that, it would make it easier for me to allow people to hold her anyway…
Yes, I want her to nap in her bed. But not really because she won’t want to be in my arms forever.
Yes, I want to eat a full meal in one sitting.
Yes, I’m looking forward to her first trip to Disney.
Yes, I think about all the adventures we will have when she’s old enough to remember them.
Yes. The answer is probably yes, I’m looking forward to [insert milestone here].
But for now, I will remind myself to enjoy THIS moment because all too soon it will be a memory.
All too soon she will be independent.
All too soon she will no longer be my tiny princess, but a full grown princess.
To my readers, may you live in THIS moment, because if you stop and look around it’s probably beautiful.
