coolness

brooke really is growing up...a 6 year old and kindergartner. a big sister. she has ideas about exactly how her hair is to be done in the morn...and i see that in the future, there will be some fights. but for now, i love to see that big, fat smile of hers as she starts to prance to the bus stop...
but then, it happened. "mom, i'm way big enough to walk to the bus stop alone. it's just not cool. bye mom."
and then i see the hugs and the kisses becoming fewer and fewer and frustrated times coming ahead and i realize, i suddenly am not cool anymore for brooke. and i just have to say, i'm a totally cool momma...i mean, wow! {ha}

so i take the wave and a tilt the head towards mom's mouth kiss and realize, i've got 2 more that think i'm still that cool...for now.
i mean, none of the other mom's take pics of their kids going to the bus stop! they are soooo NOT cool!

{{this was the morning before the major snow fall this week...we have about another 8 inches on top of this now. and yet, b doesn't seem to mind.}}
i'm off to soak my sorrows in coffee...if you happen to stumble upon spring, could you please send her my way? i LOATHE the snow...need the beach. {{48 days until my feet hit sand again, in case you are counting}}

Too cute. I love that toothless smile. You are a cool mom & if I could find spring I would send her your way. Ugh. I am freezing.

What a big girl. I'm so terrified of the day that I'm not cool enough for my daughter.

Michelle said...

Gotta love that toothless grin. :)

She is adorable! You can always come say hello to me in FL, I swear spring is on its way!

Okay, really? Walking to the bustop alone for kindergarten?!? Oh man - I am SO not ready for that. Can we make up some bubbles for them - at least until they are 13. No wait. Until they are married. Ugh.

Mamarazzi said...

at least YOU are a cool mama taking pictures to document how COOL she is walking to the bus stop "alone".

Speaking of snow, we got 4 INCHES last night! LB had the best time playing in it this morning and now it's melting.

Michelle said...

aaww she's too young to think it's not cool to have you walk her to the bus stop!

Brooke's smile is so beautiful. I love it when they are missing a tooth!

Hugs and Mocha,

first off I always have trouble finding the comment button ... it is not visible to me!
secondly, she is a doll... growing up faster than her poor mom is ready for! they do that and we are left looking at the photos we took and reliving the days of the past.
My babies are also big kindergartners and race off to the bus each morning with the older kids to the bus.... but for now they rush to kiss me before they leave.
