Maddy and the Milestone

Last week my baby turned 5 years old. What a gift it was for me to watch her pass through what I thought would be an unattainable milestone. She turned 5 as though it was any other day, only with a dragon cake and more MORE MMMMMOOORREEE unicorns. She turned 5 while being totally lost in the moment. The silliness that she expressed before she could use words came bellowing out in streams of 5 year old laughter. She is so good at being alive, I learn how to be a child all over again every time I look into those blue eyes. What a gift it is to be part of her.
