Baby No More

Something magical happens between the ages of four and five.

At four, kids are still little. They need plenty of help, guidance, and reassurance.

At five, they somehow become more independent and don't seem to need Mommy as much.

I kind of feel like that's what happened to Maya over the summer.

She turned five in May.

She started Kindergarten this week.

And she loves it!

She's so excited about learning!

And proudly shows everyone her schoolwork.

Yup!This is a portrait of us - her family.
(We're a little upside down, but some days are just like that!)

Oh, my sweet Maya! This week you started Kindergarten. What will next week bring?
Please don't grow up too fast!
Your Mama
(who still needs to feel needed!)
