Oh, my littlest love.

I know you want spring to be here.

I know that you were so excited about the “puddles” on the street that you raced inside to put on the new rain gear that Auntie Kandice bought you for your 5th birthday.

I love that even though Mommy said you couldn’t play in the street – sorry about that, I’ll try harder to be less of a helicopter parent- you were determined to get out in your gear.

That the snow didn’t stop you.

I love that your boots were on the wrong feet the whole time.

I love that you refused to let a mere 3 feet of snow in the backyard get in your way of trying out that rain gear.

I loved watching you for those 5 minutes until you were too cold to play.

Stay little please. Just for a while longer.
