The Heart Wants What The Heart Wants

She’s growing up

and It’s bittersweet.

Big silent smiles now fill the house with

rolling giggles.

Newborn cries are replaced by

explosive frustrated screams.

Babbling and pointing is becoming

beautiful words from a tiny voice

A tiny person.

With her own personality.

Who will one day say to her mommy,

I love him.

You can’t stop me.


I’ve started building the moat now.

    That is so sweet.

    I started the moat too but have since given up. It was a lot of work and my girls have seemed to find ways across.

      Oh no!
      I figured they would do that!
      Sneaky kids.

      They do look happy don’t they?
      We should just encourage their love.

    If you want I can refer to you a place that sells custom made chastity belts? They come in all sorts of girly designs…florals, hearts, candy! 😉

      I think you really do know a place.
      and I think I really might want to know.

    Ahhhh, I know the feeling. I keep telling Little Miss that she has to stop growing so big but she just laughs at me.

      They want to grow up and get away from us.

      Thank you so much!
      I know a lot of moms struggle with their kids growing.
      It’s killing me.

    Hahaha. I’m sure her daddy will help with that too!

      He came up with the idea!!
      Good man

    How adorable is that picture! We staged lots of photos the other day of Zoe making out with her boyfriend Eli. Then she mysteriously came down with a cold, so he’s been blacklisted.

      I would expect so.
      All playdates should be held inside a bubble from now on.

    A MOAT!!! Brilliant! I don’t have a daughter, but I understand not wanting to let go. I’m hoping to turn my son into one of those mama’s boys who has to call his mom everyday. His wife will hate it… and I don’t care.

    • multitaskingmumma
      August 4, 2011 | 10:02 pm

      this is a perfect plan.
      If I have a boy I will do the same thing to him.
      I fully support this.

    D is a cutie pie and will only get cuter as the years pass. You and B dig the moat, and when it’s finished, I’ll supply the allagators.

      He thought it was sweet.

      And is now building the draw bridge.

    Oh my gosh I can’t believe how fast she is growing up and she’s not mine. She’s not the flying baby in that picture anymore. 🙁

      I know..
      But the great thing about blogging?
      I haven’t met you in person but I care about your children… I’m watching them grow!

    Lock her up now.

    Too sweet. But oh, to look at that picture and know what’s ahead of her. So much joy and angst and happiness.

    • multitaskingmumma
      August 4, 2011 | 9:55 pm

      I love your positive outlook.
      thank you for that.

    She is adorable.

    Don’t remind me that one day a boy is going to try and steal my girls away from me. I’m not ready for that yet.

    • multitaskingmumma
      August 4, 2011 | 9:55 pm

      I’m not either Jessica.
      We’re the mom’s they can’t take them away… right?

    A moat? Never crossed my mind. Adding that to the list of things to deter boys daring to hurt one of my girls.

    Aw, sweet. You’re already thinking about THAT now?

      I don’t want her to grow up.
      That part sucks.
