{grow}

As a mother of three, I find myself sometimes almost imploring them to grow. It's always at my most frustrated, harried moments when I think I wish you were bigger so you could get your own water, put on your own shoes, wipe your own nose.

 

But in the calmer moments, I know that they are growing all too fast. That the baby who sweetly implores ma-ma over and over again will someday think I am hopelessly uncool (and will probably be right), that the little girl who so proudly finished first grade will be off to middle school and all that it brings before I know it, and the sweet preschooler will outgrow her constant desire to dress up as her favorite princess.
