Two days ago my daughter, Madison, is officially 4 years old and I have a mix set of emotions. Clearly I have the sentimental and sadness type of emotion, knowing my daughter is getting way to big and I wonder where did all that time go? She was born at 6 lbs 1 oz and at 36 weeks and 6 days. The first thing I said when I saw her born was “Where is my baby?” — and I’m not joking. I was so shocked to see such a small child I clearly thought the wrong child came out of me … because that happens a lot right? LOL
Anyways, my daughter did have issues with her stomach but as she got bigger and stronger, she was just the brightest and best part of my life; even when I was going through a tough time with her dad. Now the other type of emotion I have been having is the fun and I can’t wait to see what else she has in store for me. Anyone that knows my daughter knows she is a GREAT kid but also know she has a tough side to her. She tends to be bossy and has a major attitude and as of now she tends to really press her luck — but I love her and I even say “you are such a brat but I love you so much” and she just says “I am NOT a brat” — well I can’t ask more than that! This child keeps me on my toes and the Lord gave me a great daughter for many different reasons. I know I haven’t been the perfect parent and I know she will have me still learning a heck of a lot more but I gotta say… I wouldn’t trade this for anything!
