yesterday

I declined to talk yesterday about something of the utmost importance.

Well I didn't talk about it here.

It was a conscious choice.

Truth be told I'm not sure why I made it.

Yesterday though... was K's sixth birthday.

My little girl has gone from this


to this


in six years...

It took a lot for her to get from there to here. For her to go from laying around kicking her feet and looking adorable to putting two pens in her mouth at a dinner table and pretending they're blow darts... or whatever it was she was doing there (but no. no. she was not pretending to be a walrus... that is beneath her okay?)

The point is?

My little girl. My tiny one.

She is growing up. It's going quickly.

While I may complain about her idiosyncrasies... the insanity I sometimes feel she is driving me to... the fact that I am really tired... you know stuff...

I would never have it any other way. I love her.

completely.

wholly.

unconditionally.

yesterday and always.

Wish K a happy birthday and congrats to you and Mr. Kaos

It is amazing how fast it all happens, how stressfull it is, and how utterly cool it is to be a parent.
