I Want to Freeze Time

I want to freeze time so I can remember this young four-year old stage forever, when Miss J finds the whole world magical and exciting.

And accessorizes by the truckload.

And wears monkey jammies to jump on the bed.

And wants to grow up to marry her Daddy, because all the other boys are stinky.

And puts her shoes on the wrong feet but refuses to change them out of pride.

And dreams about Santa Claus in August.

And thinks “meanie” is the ultimate cuss word.

And waves to every fire truck, police officer, and school bus we pass.

And tucks 14 stuffed friends into bed before she can sleep.

And starts her prayers with, “In the name of the FOD-DER…”

And dreams magical, four-year old dreams.

    I so agree with you. My daughter just turned 5 and is growing up so fast. Today she told me she didn’t want to grow up and get big and I kinda agreed with her. If they could just stay our little babies forever. Beautiful capture Melissa. I especially love her Hello Kitty necklace 🙂
