I cannot believe little monster girl is 5. I mean, the time has flown. How did my little baby become such an amazing little young lady? Today I can’t stop thinking about laying with her 2 week old self in the middle of the night just listening to her coo. I remember looking at her in amazement, I made this person. I am entrusted with her care. Wow.

Well, I’m doing my best and she is pretty awesome.

There are so many things I want for her, but mostly I want her to know that she can be, do anything she wants as long as she’s willing to work for it. I want her to know that she has no limits. I want her to know I’m her biggest fan and her greatest supporter. I want her to know that she is loved.

To me ‘Five’ is a big, big birthday. It’s like the start of their social lives, the start of understanding outside of the home. I’m scared for her and excited for her to start this adventure. I’m scared she’ll be a bully, I’m scared she’ll be bullied. I’m scared she’ll miss me at school and cry all day, I’m scared she won’t miss me at all. I want my day to myself, but I’ll miss her.

Ready or not, this is Five.
