It happened today. One of those parenting moments you know will come, you’re not sure when, and you hope to put it off as long as possible. Audrey asked for some avocado. You see, up until now its always been ava-ba-cado. I loved the way she said it- the sweet innocence in her voice. Every time ava-ba-cado came out of her mouth, I would smile regardless of my mood.

This is just one of the signs that she is growing up, getting older. I’m still holding on though. She is still my baby. And I know the day is getting closer when she will break my heart further when the aminals (animals) are no longer classified as small, big, and medier (medium).
