My daughter turned 6 yesterday.
She will have a fun filled party at our local “Fun Factory” this weekend. I also plan on taking her to a show this Saturday with a family friend. But her actual birthday was marked with school cupcakes and a gift or two.
And still she turned 6.
No matter that I am completely amazed that this happened.
No matter that she was just a baby yesterday. Pulling away from me, sound asleep, with one small dribble of milk trapped in the corner of her mouth and a look of pure contentment on her tiny little face.
No matter what.
She now is 6.
And she is this super-fantastic, strong willed, stubborn, singing, swirling bundle of 6.
And as her mom…I am awed.
No longer a toddler. Truly a kid.
