We just got back (about an hour ago) from little Missy's first fitting. She'll be a flower girl 2 Saturdays from now and it's her first time.
As soon as I saw the dress, I knew she'd look beautiful in it (of course every Mommy knows that), but I also knew what was wrong with it. It was too long.
A part of me wanted to believe that it was just too long, that the couturier kept it long in case of adjustments. But a part of me also didn't want to believe it could have been that long because it meant she grew up fast on me.
When she tried it on, she didn't look like a baby anymore. She wasn't my snuggly bunny. She already turned into a beautiful little girl. I felt that pang I always read about in books. More so when she started shying away, knowing everyone was looking at her.
Oh well... I knew this would happen but I didn't think it was sooner rather than later. I told the couturier to cut off 3 inches to make sure she wouldn't trip on her dress. I'd rather expose her ankles and shoes that do a long gownish sort of thing then have her fall during her walk. So, we'll be back there on Saturday and hopefully I don't forget to take pictures (again).
As a parent, have you ever felt this sad but happy feeling knowing your kid/s are growing up too soon?
