It was a regular old night. Wyatt was down playing with the boys, and I was upstairs with Tate. She asked me to draw her stars to color, and I suggested showing her how to draw her own.
There really wasn't anything special about it. But something about how much she concentrated, tried, tried again, succeeded, and then spent the next hour perfecting, I loved. I quickly grabbed my camera so I didn't miss this milestone for her! The wonder of childhood is so amazing, and this night especially, I wanted to freeze her forever.
Sometimes I forget, because Tate is so responsible, that she's only five. I hope so badly to never take that for granted, and nights like this help me to remember that she's still my little girl.
Learning for the first time how to make a star.
Later that night she helped me water the plants outside. When she spotted a crescent moon in sky, she lay on the grass. I asked what for.
"To see more stars".
It was just a simple night that I never want to forget.
