Growing up


C and I are spending the morning infringing upon the good people at Barnes and Nobles and playing with their display toys. We were supposed to have a meet up with some of the moms in my mom group, but we appear to be the only ones here. C’s settled in with her favorite toy here, giving me a few minutes to waste on my phone.

As C’s personality starts to show through, it makes me think of her as less of a baby and more of a little person. It makes me wonder what the future holds for her and us. What mistakes will she make? What accomplishments will she value most? What will make her happy? What will disappoint her? It’s exciting and scary to think about. Very soon, she’ll be making decisions independent from us, and we can only hope that what we’ve taught her at home will stick. In a way, it’s freeing to think about her doing things on her own. We don’t need to do as much for her, and while letting go of that control might be tough, seeing her grow into her own person will be a fantastic reward.

Ok, break time is over. Time to get back to it. Moving on to play with the trains now.
