BeachPea's Special Day

I had this crazy dream the other night...


baby kat
that my little baby girl

who likes to snuggle on my lap, and play with Little People, and paint on herself, and watch Teletubbies

suddenly grew up

and was having her 10th birthday.

and was getting her first roses delivered to her

and was smiling a big beautiful 10 year old smile.

And was in charge of making her own birthday cake

with just a little help

from grandma, and aunt, and uncle, and mom and dad

who all love her 10 year old self very much

and she was making dreamy wishes

and was sweetly hugging her little sister

for homemade gifts

and was thrilled over engaging in all the latest fashions.

And then I woke up
and it wasn't a dream at all.

And my little baby girl
who likes to write in her diary, and take care of the farm animals, and do math for fun, and who loves pink, and and loves "photoshopping" pictures, and wearing nail polish, and surprising me by cleaning up the living room just when I need it the most

and who still snuggles on my lap

is really growing up.


Boo.

But we had a wonderful birthday party at the beach house. And it's been so fun watching her really, really enjoy her "birthweek". And even though time flies by too fast, each year with my baby girl gets better and better, so really I can't complain.

But I certainly am thankful for this (not so) little (anymore) blessing in my life.

Happy Birthday, BeachPea!
