My Daughters

I was giving my girls a bath tonight as always. As I tried to wash my Soap's hair, she said, "Mommy, I can do it..." and asked me to pour shampoo on her hand. Soapy couldn't wash her hair on her own or didn't even want to wet her face in the tub or pool a few month ago. Now, she is not afraid. That's when it hit me... Those little tiny things are growing up, fast. And it kind of makes me sad about it.

They are 5 and 3 - obviously they are still small and give me so much joy by just looking at things they do. And I won't lie about it: The size of their hight or body are just so cute.

I sometimes tell my girls, "Can you girls, please stay the way you are now? Don't grow up. Stay tiny for Mommy..." They always look at me funny and Ju Ju points out, "But Mommy, I'm always your baby, right?" And she is right.

They will always be my babies and they will always be the most important things in my life. There will be time where they will start dating or their hearts get broken or the first kiss; I want to be the mom that they can come to me and talk honestly and share those important moments in their lives, like my mom was there for me and my sister.

It really scares me sometimes to think about their future.. I don't know what awaits them. So what I can do is to read their favorite books or cook their favorite food, or hold their hands when we walk around the lake, or that tell them I love them every chance I get, hoping that they know that their mommy loves them and they can count on me....

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I can't wait to share some funny stories from our vacation in NJ this week!!!

My little man is about to turn one and I am wigging out. But you're right. The best we can do is squeeze them tight, make sure they know they're loved and appreciate every little moment we have with them!

Kids do grow up so fast, but they will still be your babies. My parents still think of me as their baby and they still call us kids even though we are adults now.

Aw, they do grow up fast... I'm not sure where the last two years went with my bf's niece. She just keeps getting bigger, cuter and more capable. It all goes so fast!

Welcome back! Can't wait to see pictures. Aww it's so bittersweet to see them grow up. But you've done a great job and they will remain the great girls you've raised them to be.

They are the cutest, Maki! Your girls are going to grow up to be amazing, thanks to the way you love them and show you that you care.

Hooray! I want to hear all about NJ! I am looking forward to hearing all about your little getaway!

That is so funny. I tell Leo the same thing all the time...Daddy is going to be sad if you grow up. When in reality we both will be devastated!

Kaitlyn said...

This is so sweet... They are very blessed to have a mom like you!

JuJu's right. She's ALWAYS gonna be your little girl no matter how big she gets. I'm still my momma's little girl....even though I stand head and shoulders above her and weigh more than twice her weight.
