Pin It

Holding On

It has  been three days since my princess has been using the potty. 
It happened organically.
I ran out of diapers 
I had Minnie Mouse  panties in her drawer.
since last Christmas...
She has been ready for months.
I have used a million excuses 
of why I hadn't "trained" her yet.
There was only one real reason
I have been holding on to my baby girl. 
I knew once we were out of diapers, 
that meant big girl bed and all that translates 
is she has very little baby left. 
After days of secretly crying 
while she napped
I decided to take my baby girl out
to the Pumpkin Patch
where all she did was prove to me 
just how much of a big girl she is becoming
keeping Vernon safe on the Train ride
(she never even wants to touch him)
 wanting to get  her face painted
for the first time by a stranger
you  know my girl and her shyness
at least I can count on her to not look at the camera 
for awhile...
I hope
 She loved  her face paint
she asked to take a nap with it on
as long as you stay my baby forever I told her
and as she hugged my neck
she said okay momma.
cue my hot tears here

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, I will be filling buckets with tears as I transform her room into a "Big Girl" room.

I'm pretty sure you need to frame that last picture and hang it in the house.
