Last night my daughter (6) comes to me after her nightly shower and says "Mom, look! I have a lose tooth"
We were all jumping and making a big fuss about it, she loved it lol... but I felt like crying, my baby is growing :)
Then having the "mom mind" I have, I started thinking about what is coming next "mom look I got my period!", "mom, this is my boyfriend", "mom can I borrow the car?", "mom I can't believe he left me." (add the heartbroken-crying-face to this one) "mom look I'm engaged!".... and so on.. lol
All I can do is keep the memories and as we did last night when she came into our room with her news about her tooth... grab her, put her in the middle of our bed and hug her to sleep.
