I cannot believe that I even wrote that title. I am the one who has been counting down days until summer since Christmas. Yes, I still want the school day to go quickly, but Katie Lee needs to slow down. She is growing and changing so fast. Don't get me wrong, I want her to grow and develop normally and I would never want to hinder her development, but she is just growing up too fast. Just yesterday, she learned how to say Gary, Boss (Zeb's dog), and forget. She also recognized the color yellow in a book and said yellow. All of that is fine and good, and I am very proud of her. Here is the sad part. Ever since Katie Lee was a baby, night time has been our special cuddle time. At first we would rock in the recliner, then she wanted to lay on the couch, and in the last few nights she would get just about asleep and want to go to bed. Once she falls asleep we put her in her baby bed. Well, last night we got on the couch, said her nite nite prayer (even prayed for the ceiling fan) and she pointed into her room and said nite nite bed. She wanted to just go lay down in her bed before going to sleep. I laid her down and she snuggled up with Dog Dog. I tried to pet her and she moved my hand. Oh, she doesn't even need me to go to sleep anymore! I never thought that would bother me. I had even been talking about her a big bed because she is getting close to being able to climb out of the baby bed, but it completely broke my heart. Anyway, she slept all night but was very proud to see me this morning before I left for work. I know this will seem really minor before long and I will probably even laugh about it.
Well, my class just came in. Maybe the day will go quickly. :) Only 18 more to go!!
