Holding Her Back...

I confess. I don't want my baby to grow up. I knew back in December she was ready to pottytrain. I knew she probably wouldn't miss her pacifier. And there was no way I was ready to send her to preschool. But I have realized that she is ready for all of this. And it doesn't matter that it breaks my heart that she is growing up. Ultimately, moms have to constantly sacrifice. And this time I am sacrificing the desire to still have my baby a baby. Ugh, motherhood can be hard. But these moments, when I know I can't be selfish and let go a little bit. Pretty much stink.

So we are pottytraining and she is doing great. There are only a couple of pacifiers left that she keeps biting holes in, so when the last one is mutilated that's it no more. And after a message from the preschool asking if I would sign Ellie up since they had an opening? Well, yes Lord, I am listening. If that isn't a sign for me to let her grow up then I don't know what is!

Now I am going to sit and cry for a minute...
