When you have a four-year old daughter..
October 14, 2010
Your hallway will become a fortress.
There will be glitter in the carpet and in her hair. Sand will now be fairy dust.
Any reason will be a reason to paint. And to use real scissors.
Sometimes she will “disappear”, only to be replaced by a kitty, who will meow for days.
And there will be lots of stories, long stories. With a very, very long beginning and never a middle or an end. And they will be captivating.
She will change her clothes four times a day. At least.
Her name may change and so will her imaginary friends’.
Luckily for me, I’ve raised two other four-year old girls. I know that eventually, the glitter disappears, the hallway clears and the stickers stay on paper.
So, treasure the four-year old moments.
