From baby to little girl

My 3 year old is making strides. This time last year, she was a stay-home toddler who played with me, her big sister, her dad and by herself. The dog was her favorite companion of all I believe.

In August I put her in preschool. Much to her dismay. She cried everyday. Once so loud the director approaches the room stating very sternly “whose child is that?”…talk about making a mom feel terrible.

Today it dawned on me. She’s playing with her little friend across the street everyday after school. She talks about her friends at school, and describes them to a ‘ T “. She knows their favorite cartoons and what they’re going to be for Halloween. She jitters about music class, gets excited about art projects and mimics her teacher…”boys and girls EYES ON ME”. She tells me she’s the doctor and her friend has a cold. My little baby is entering the world of make believe….why just yesterday her and her friend loaded up the baby stroller. They pulled it all across the yard a half-dozen times on their way to the beach!

It’s something I remember very fondly with my oldest daughter too. So much goes on with them in a such a short period of time. The little one reminds me of the older one growing up. It’s taught me to stop what I’m doing and treasure each of their growing stages…by tomorrow, they just may be all grown up with their agenda.

About tweenspot

I am like so many moms raising young girls, scared I'm doing the right thing and learning with pure amazement at the same time! I feel like I have become my mother (don't we all) favorite phrase is "today things are so different than when I/we grew up". The absolute hysteria in that phrase scares me too. I don't want to be scared. I like to think that as a professional, working, college educated women that I can embrace the world we live in. That's why I have been researching Tweens, what they like, do, what's hot and what's trends are going to cost me a fortune in the future! My little girls are the love of my life. By creating this blog, I want a safe internet place for girls and moms to share. This blog is in the infancy stage, but I have big plans for it. So stay tuned.... Read, enjoy, comment. Visit as often as you'd like. I hope together we can build a community for girls and moms to explore, learn and share with one another.
