Asha Turns 5.

The little nugget that made me a mother is now 5-years-old! Everyday, I go to sleep knowing I have loved her fully and infinitely, but then I somehow wake up the next morning, with even more love for her in my heart! I hope this magic lasts forever and forever.

As much as I want time to hold still at least for the moment, I am also excited for the adult Asha that is going to take over the world. She tells me frequently that I shouldn’t worry about her growing up too fast though, because she will still give me hugs and will stay with me forever! *Add a tear here.*

It’s been bittersweet for me to watch her understand the world on a deeper and more realistic level too now. This means she has randomly asked me “why are there bad people in the world?”, or made statements like “I wish unicorns were real mom”. But it’s almost like she asks these questions with a determination to fix the obvious goof.
