Im loosing my baby!! Tonight after she took her shower, she stood in front of the mirror in my room brushing her hair. I sat in the bed and watched as she smiled at her reflection in the mirror. She had a big knot on the back of her head and asked me for help. I brushed it out and started to part her hair the way Ive been doing for the past 6 years of her life. As she grabbed the brush from my hand she sucked her teeth and said “mom that’s not the way I like it anymore”. I watched in sadness as she brushed her hair the way she liked. At that point I realized that she’s growing up and she’s starting to have her own style & courage to speak up. Its only a matter of time till she really isn’t my little baby.
