sorry Becoming a woman....

On Sunday, A's grandma took her shopping. She came back with some really cute outfits. Among them, this gorgeous pencil skirt that is a navy blue taffeta..... She bought a black lacy shirt and shrug to go with it. A modeled it for me, and when she came out of the hall, I couldn't breathe. I saw, in those moments, the woman she will be. And I cried.

How do you handle this? I just want to bawl like a baby. I feel like I am losing something special and I just want to keep it. I know I can't, but I desperately want to bottle her up and protect her.

LSL I have no idea! I see glimpses of my oldest son turning into a young man. Fleeting at first, but more frequent......and I want him to stay a little boy! If you figure out how to put the genie back in the bottle, let me know please!!!

It is very bittersweet. It took me months to stop doing a double take when seemingly overnight he looked like a different person. I went through my little phase of putting up some of my favorite baby pics here when I was going back and looking. It is heartwrenching and unfair! Their childhoods go by so fast!

Awe.....I bet she looked beautiful, LSL. I see my E changing all the time and was kinda sad about it last night. She is acting/looking so much older lately. I want it to SLOW DOWN!

Thats the thing with kids, they grow up so fast. My son is 2 and i'd like to keep him that age forever, all we can do as parents is be proud of our babies growing into strong, beautiful men and women, its sad and i dread the day my son is a man and no longer needs me. LSL your daughter sounds like she has great style!!

I haven't a clue! My girls often dress up and sing, do dancing with the stars, etc. A few weeks ago M came down with an outfit that did the same to me. Wasn't "beautiful" but omg... my brown leather high heel clogs, skinny jeans, a long sweater, scarf, makeup. I looked at her and almost fell over, maybe because the shoes fit, maybe because the makeup was done correctly and wasn't the typical clown face she has done in the past. I don't know, just scared me. OH.... and she had my bra on underneath all stuffed LOL

I was holding a friend's baby the other night and got to feed a bottle. It literally brought tears to my eyes. How did time pass so quickly I can barely even remember most of it?
