I have an almost four year old and I am freaking out about it. I always got upset when my Mom would say she didn't remember what my siblings and I did when we were younger. Whitney would do something crazy and I would ask my Mom did I ever do that? She would say sure but she really didn't remember. I am starting to understand that now. Avery is four today and I am imagining what she is going to be like when she is five, six and older. I just can not wrap my mind around it. Will she smell like school like Whitney did? Will she still take a nap? Now that I have Whitney to pick up from HS will there be time for a nap? Avery will be going to pre-K in the fall. I don't even know if it's a full day or not. I'm not sure if I want to know right now. With the girls so far apart in age it's hard for me to remember Whitney being this little. Will I be a better Mommy to Avery than Whitney? So many things I worry about. 

For today they are put to rest as I wait for my four year old to wake up. I love to hear she little feet as they come running down the hall to me in the living room. I love how sleepy and warm she will be when she gets into my lap. I'm not sure what the day will bring but I know that it will start soon, and I can not wait to "nuggle" my baby.

One Shoe, Brown Shoe, Blue Shoe.

Have you ever been driving and seen one shoe on the side of the road? I have so many questions about this. Where do they come from? Isn't someone missing that shoe? How does one lose one shoe? Should I start a collection? Maybe I could post them somewhere so if someone is looking for the other shoe they can find it again? 

I feel this way about hats also. A hat though I can understand more how you can lose it. Your driving along and a big wind hits just right. Your bound to lose a hat, but why not stop to pick it up? Do you think, well the wife didn't like that hat anyway? Are you running late? You can't tell me you didn't know the hat went out the window! 

Someone out there has to have a story about this. I need to know people!!
