It Happened...

Once upon a time I had this little baby girl.


and she grew...


and grew...


and grew.


And she was pretty sure the world belonged to her.



Then, one day I looked in my rear view mirror 
& I completely lost my breath.

The little girl was gone.


And in her place was a little teeny-bopper.

Who lies on her bed & talks to Danny.


(Don't worry friends...Danny is a girl.)

But it's okay,
only cause she still grabs my hand when we go shopping.


And 'cause she's the best big sister in the world.


I just hope she still believes the world belongs to her.

She has grown so much! Always strange when that happens. Especially when all of a sudden they are bigger than you and you wonder how time passed so quickly. Time definitely marches on. Best wishes, Tammy
