chicken




This child wants to be a super hero. Today she is a chicken in a terrycloth cape. Tomorrow...? Who knows.
She is growing up so darned fast! Yikes. I can hardly stand it. Her language has taken enormous leaps. Now, it's not just words, it's ideas and jokes and stories and make believe. There are days, I can't wait for her to grow up. Those days are filled with stress and "shoulds" and "have tos." Then, some days, I am brought to tears at the thought of how quickly time is moving. It seems like only yesterday that our oldest, Olivia, was a little peanut in diapers and a terrycloth chicken cape, now she is talking about boys and singing along to pop songs on the car radio. Wow!
I hope that I can cherish this plucky little super hero and all of my girls and my husband and my family and my friends... I am so lucky to have each and everyone of these people in my life.

a great piece to help me to cherish the little days as they go by...too quickly.

Shandy,
They go way too fast! It's so hard, sometimes, to remember that those are the BEST times.
