This Saturday I did the Walkabout Autism by Dan Marino Foundation held at the Sun life stadium. There was so many people there, the whole field was filled with people and it poured out to the entrance. It was so nice to see all the people there to support the cause, it made me tear up a bit to see how united people can become for a cause.
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.
Today on ABC they will be showing A Charlie Brown Christmas, my uncle has arranged for us to come over and watch it together, I can’t say how thrilled I am to see it. As a kid I watched it so many times but every time I watch it I still get all giddy inside. It reminds me of all the times I watched it as a kid. I’m glad they still play it on T.V and that I could enjoy it with my girls, I hope that when I’m older I still get to watch it during the holidays!
