Coming of Age

I went to Wal-Mart this afternoon.  As I looked at my list, I realized that the bulk of the list was comprised of things for my four-year-old.  

Kid's shampoo (a first for her since we have always used baby shampoo)
Colored floss picks
Fluoride mouth rinse
Bubble bath  

When I got home, I pulled each item out and showed her. She was SO excited! I was excited for her.  It's so much fun having a girl.  We had to carefully open each thing and let her see and smell...over and over.  

As I put her things up, I couldn't help but smile. One day, my baby girl turned into a toddler...and then when I wasn't looking, she grew into a pre-schooler. Now she has her own corner in the bathroom cabinet for her stuff. 

Later we giggled as I rolled up little pieces of a napkin to put between her toes so I could polish those tiny toenails pink.

Sugar and spice and everything nice
That's what my sweet girl is made of...

How fun! When my niece was little and she would come spend the night we used to do these things. Now I have brand new twin nieces who are three months old. I can't wait for them to get old enough to come over and do fun girly things!
