This morning I actually got to go for a walk all alone, for awhile. My almost 8 year old decided to meet me at the park to play while I walked the track. After walking back to my street to meet her at the end, we headed back to the park. I walked around once while she played and then she joined me at the path.
Me: "Would you like to walk with me?"
Her: "Yes, I forgot I'm not a little kid anymore."
Me: "You are very big now."
Her: "Yes, I forgot I'm not little kid anymore and so I can't play at the park without friends."
I agreed and told her that it was a lot of fun to play with friends. Then I laughed to myself and saw her as a much bigger kid than I had before. She is growing quickly...Time goes fast.
