Precious Time

D sent this note from 6 year old B to me today as a reminder of how fast time goes by, and how little time we have left with our little girl. Childhood is so fleeting, and then it seems like we're adults forever. She's already 8. It seems like there are so few years left to treasure her smallness. To cuddle her in her bed before she asserts her independence in a massive and possibly (probably) hurtful way. In a matter of what will seem like seconds these sweet notes will be all that's left of our baby girl before she moves on to a new phase of growing up.

"I love you mommy. Thank you for letting me set the table. Thank you very much mommy, you make good food."
