Do you every have those moments as a parent when you look across the room or in your rear-view mirror at your child and think, "When did they get so old?"
I find this happening to me often as of late. Especially with Ashlynn.
I will watch her care for her sister, fix her own problems, and listen to her imagination go places I didn't know possible.
She is growing up. She is looking more and more like a 'big kid'. She is making me so proud.
I like who she is becoming.
It also scares me to death and want to hold her close.
Her face is a constant reminder that I have to be intentional, consistent, and not just give in.
As hard as parenting is, it is also so rewarding.
She is has such a beautiful, wild spirit. That she was born with.
I love this girl.
Just slow down a little....
