Friday’s Everyday Beauty

November 6th, 2009 in Beauty in Everyday

She is becoming a woman.

Yes, I know she is not even four yet. Let me clarify. She is no longer a baby or a toddler or even a preschooler. She is a GIRL who is growing into a woman.

She is so “mold-able” right now. She just soaks everything in. Let’s be honest here- it terrifies me.

The girl has already got me down to a T. She knows my weaknesses, when I call a bluff and how to word things just the right way.

I don’t want to say this for sure, but I am starting to think the girl ENJOYS living in clutter. Before bedtime, she piles everything she can into her bed. She falls asleep on top of these piles. I go in her room to check on her before I go to bed and cannot understand how she even fell asleep. Books, Leap Frog readers, seashells and her LAMP are poking out from under her.

Every Wednesday I would hurry and pick up her mess (obviously not from a 3 1/2 year old girl but from a TORNADO) in preparation for the house cleaners that come early Thursday morning.

But not anymore. She needs to clean it up herself. So she does as I sit there patiently helping her a bit.


We chat. We talk. I like watching her work. I love working together.

Maybe it’s ok that she is a cute little messy tornado.

What do you find beauty in on Fridays?
