Can you believe that my daughter is going to be 5 on Monday?
I can remember when I brought her home from the NICU. I can remember her being so small that we had to give her a bath in the kitchen sink.
I had to pack her up today to go with Mom and Dad to NYC. I was able to convince them to take her to go see the Little Mermaid on Broadway. Not like it was all that hard.
They leave in the morning for the plane. Then she is going to eat dinner at one of my favorite restaurants in NYC, Gallaghar's on West 52nd. What a fabulous steak house!!!
Friday she will spend the day with her Auntie Shirley. Shirley is my bestest friend in the whole wide world. I have known her for over 20 years and she just happens to be the kids Godmother.
They are going to spend the night with Shirley's 5 nephews and have a movie night with pizza and the works.
Then Saturday she is going to take the bus, ride the subway and eat dinner at Frankie and Johnnies on West 37th. I love the creamed spinach there. OMG to die for. Then they are off to the 8pm show of the Little Mermaid.
She will be back on the plane Sunday afternoon for home. Then Monday is the big day. My girl will be 5.
I can't believe that she has been able to accomplish in 5 years what it took me over 25 to experience.
Just last week I was kicking myself because I did not get her a plane ticket to go to London with my husband for the five days.
Can anyone else remember when having a passport was a luxury? It is now a necessity.
Y'all, my girl is growing up so quickly.
OK, just to let you know, y'all were right...
Time goes by so quickly. Enjoy them each and everyday. Because not to long in the future, they may be changing your diapers.
until we meet again,
