My baby girl turned 5 last week.
She's going to start kindergarten in the fall. She who has never been to preschool. The closest thing to daycare for her was VBS. And I was her teacher.
For the longest time, she was the baby of the family. We thought she would always be and treated her as such. Boy did she have a rude awakening.
She's our girly girl. She loves to put on makeup I never realized I had. And high heels that I never wear. She loves to play with people's hair. And twirl around the living room as her sister plays the piano. She's the reason why people love little girls.
Sometime this past year, she changed from an incoherent, needy, tantrum-y, overgrown toddler to a still needy, less tantrum-y but articulate young girl. We can hardly wait to see what this coming year will bring.
Watch out, World, here she comes.
