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.
(We're a little upside down, but some days are just like that!)
Please don't grow up too fast!
(who still needs to feel needed!)
