The Scariest Day Ever...

Yesterday Tomika went to a Shopping Centre with two of her girlfriends from school.

By herself.

For the first time.

I DID NOT want her to go. I was scared shitless! I know, I know. She has to grow up and all that. But really... Really? I wanted to tell her, "No, you can't go. You're too LITTLE." I wanted to grab my baby and wrap her up in Mummy's arms and never let her go.

When did my newborn become an independent teenager? When did THAT happen!?

The last time I really looked, she resembled this.

These days, she looks like this.


My baby is no longer a baby. She is a beautiful demi-woman.

And  I. Am. Terrified.


  1. So are you telling me that they grow up all on their own, without our permission?
    I am sooo NOT ok with that.

  2. Tell me about it. NOT my idea at all. If only I could keep her at the age on my header!

  3. Hey Brea
    thanks for your comments on my blog - they are so lovely and supportive.
    Your daughter is so pretty - I can imagine your apprehension at her going off to the big world alone for the first time.

  4. Hi Carly,

    You're welcome darl! Glad I can contribute to making you smile. :)

    And, thank you. Meeks is a pretty girl... Just don't let HER know ok? Lol! She's still at that kinda unaware age and I'd like to keep her there as long as humanly possible!


Thanks for taking the time to stop by! I absolutely LOVE comments!!!
But please, play nice okay?
