I don't wanna grow up..

photo by
Today Makena and I were discussing when she goes to Kindergarten next year and all the new friends she'll make. We started to talk about after Kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade and so on. I told her she will go to college then she'll be a big girl and go to work and I asked her what she wants to be when she grows up.
She gets real quiet and looks at me with her eyes full of tears and that big puckered lip and says " I don't want to grow up mommy because then I won't be here with you" and starts to CRY.... I mean really cry...Oh my heart FELL APART!!!

Ohh I LOST it... water works like you've never seen... It was a bit ridiculous but ohh! my little girl!!
I grabbed her, hugged her and said "you will NEVER not be with me sweetie, you can live with me forever.."
See, this is the reason I started this blog, I don't ever want to forget that moment!!!
or for her to forget it because I will show this to her the day she tries to tell me she is moving out... but that is waaaaaaayy far away
ahh hemm
