Growing up too soon

Thursday, January 20, 2011

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?

Just a few weeks ago, I took my son to McDonalds for lunch. I'm used to having to get his drink for him, and squirt the ketchup into the little cups because he can't reach... Well this time, he insisted that I let him do it. So I handed him the cup and off he went. He didn't have any trouble, and I was so happy to see the look of accomplishment on his face! But at the same time, I was sad because I knew that this is just another one of those things that he don't need mommy for anymore. 10 minutes later, he went to grab some napkins though, and couldn't reach. He turned around with this cute little look on his face and said, "mommy, I need your help". That made my day. Aaaah motherhood.

Oh my...I feel the pangs all the time...and to think that I am with my daughter everyday! I watch mother-daughter movies and I feel it. I watch a daughter getting married and her mother in tears, and then I also cry. It's "OA", I know. But I can't help it. I want her to remain my snuggly bunny (as you say!) forever, but I also want to see her grow and develop into a lady. Oh, the joys and pains of being a mother, huh? *sigh!*

I am feeling that too. Though my daughter is only 10 months old but she grows so fast. Literally, her height is way to high for her age. I am also excited when the time comes that she will be a flower girl. :-)
