Lula is 4.
But it’s been a long, loooooong time since my littlest has been 4.
When Zach was 4, I was pregnant with Asher.
Technically, all my kiddos will be school-aged in just a few years.
There is something to be said about parenting as a more *ahem* mature mama.
Rounded off some sharp edges.
Taught be to let some things go.
I am learning, as the days slip by, to be more purposeful. Patient. Persistent in loving on my little ones while they are still little.
Of course, age does have a downside.
I’m not as fast as I used to be.
But I think that actually suits my kids just fine. Especially my wild(er) ones, like Miss Tallula.
Because I’m a whole lot easier to outrun.
Happy Birthday, baby girl. I am so glad I get to be your mama.
