Coca-Cola Can

I was making lunch for the kids and Brookie comes up to me holding this Coca-Cola can. She says to me "Mom, why is there a Santa on this bottle? Does it make you care about your kids?" All I could do was laugh and tell her how adorable she is. 

Just another one of the many stories I will have for her when she is older.

.5 Years Old.

I don't know how the past 5 years have flown by so fast. My little Brookie Bear is going to be starting Kindergarten in the fall and is halfway through Pre-School.

I have been thinking back to when it was just Brookie and I. When my days were filled with watching Finding Nemo OVER and OVER, Mommy and Brookie nap times, helping her brush her teeth & hair, loving any game I made up for us to play and my little helper who wanted nothing more than to help me mop the kitchen floor.

Now my days are filled with a little girl who has a slew of favorite shows (right now it is Fairly Odd Parents on AutoPlay ALL DAY), she is dressing herself with a style all her own, is learning how to clean up after herself, brushes her own teeth & hair and is teaching ME how to play make believe and make up funny songs.

I am pretty sure this is where all my parenting skills will start to become defined and everything I know will start to be put to the test....can't they just stay 2 forever???
