Stay Little.. A Little While Longer

To my daughter on her 7th birthday:

Can you stay little a little while longer?

You are growing up so fast and finding your way as the calendar pages and birthdays fly by

Why not just stay little a little while longer

From preschool to kindergarten to first grade… reading and book bags and class projects

How about you just stay little a little while longer

Soccer and swimming and scouting and the dreaded word extra-curricular activities

So can you just stay little a little while longer?

Friends and playdates and parties turning into sleepovers and mall trips and movies

Why won’t you just stay little a little while longer

Everything is moving so fast… a little girl turning into a girl… tween and teen not far behind

Please… just stay little a little while longer

I need to take you growing up with the graceful baby steps of a nervous parent

So for now… you’re staying little a little while longer… like it or not

  1. Aww honey… go look at my Wheels on the Bus post… It doesn’t get any easier!
    We’re down to TWO WEEKS before my Babygirl walks out of high school as a matriculated college student. If I weren’t so overwhelmed, I think I’d be crying… just like the day she stepped on that big yellow baby-eater! 😥
