just stay little

We got to watch this cutie last night while his mom and dad had a quick over-night trip.  It's been a long time since I had to worry about someone running into the street and never left home without a ziplock bag full of goldfish.  It was kind of bitter-sweet for me to reflect on that time when I was the mom of four very young kidsos.

Gentry and I had a date today..... one her favorites...pottery painting.

And I after we were done, it was lunch and then swimsuit shopping.  As as we navigated the  busy parking lot, she even let me hold her hand.  And I loved it, and I think she did too. And I thought about how sometimes, the simplest things are the best things.  Like holding hands.  And how even though she's not five anymore, in some ways, she will always be my little girl.
