My Big Girl

Here is my sweet girl roller skating for the first time. 

A couple of hours after this, I dropped her off at her first slumber party.  Not surprisingly, she had a wonderful time. 

As I dropped her off, I gave her a quick hug and a kiss.  She sighed and said, "Thanks mom.  I can't get to sleep without a hug and a kiss."  She was serious and my heart melted.

Later that night, I got a call.  She was doing fine, but just wanted to wish me a good night.  I'm sure I went to sleep with a huge smile on my face.  Perhaps she isn't quite as big as she sometimes seems.  That's fine with me. 

I love you, my not-so-big girl!
