Yesterday Fathini finally lost a tooth. The tooth had been wiggling for quite sometime. She was so happy when the tooth fell out. It happened when she was brushing her teeth before going to bed. She already knew about losing her baby teeth as the sign of growing up.
BUT the question that she asked was, "Mama, am I an adult now?". I can't help feeling a little of knot of twist when she related growing up with adulthood. It had made me feeling so "ancient". My first baby is growing up because in about 7 more weeks she's turning to 7! Before I know it, she is already a teenager!
What does this mean now? We (my husband and I) have to prepared ourselves to change our mind set when we deal with Fathini as she is not a kindy-kid anymore. She can't wait to be adult just like us when we were growing up. Only when we reach our adulthood, we start to think that "Would it be great to turn back the clock and be a kid again?".
Have you ever think about growing up so quickly when you were younger??
