When She Grows Up - Recycled Post!

I'm recycling this post from a year ago, in response to Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop post.  I wasn't sure what I would find from last July since I didn't blog all that much while I was pregnant.  I'm glad I took a look back because it made me smile, I had forgotten how Abby would put bracelets on her feet.

All these LOVES are still there:  from the shoes to the tattooing.  More have been added like becoming a singing Firemen with a pink hat and playing doctor (thank you Doc McStuffins).  She still wants to be a rock star and be on a stage.  She's not picky about where the stage even is, evident by her disappoint at Mass when I told her she couldn't be up front with the Priest.  And the drama has just intensified throughout the year.  For example, she will put on the most pitiful face and tell me that I'm "breaking her heart" when I tell her no.  

I also still wonder what she'll be when she grows up. I am amazed at how much she has changed and learned throughout the year.  I'm so happy I took a look back (something I rarely do) to remind myself that time moves so fast!  She's was such a toddler here and now she's a little girl!  In the blink of an eye!

Ok, enough rambling since I was just supposed to recycle a post but I had to add just a few (or more) words!

Mama’s Losin’ It

Everyday Abby learns something new and everyday she makes me laugh.  One of the things that I love to do is just watch her play.  Sometimes I wonder if I'm getting a sneak peak into her future and seeing the start of a life long passion.

For example, she LOVES shoes.  She insists on wearing new shoes out of the store.  Her love of shoes recently went a step further when I saw her doing this:

I asked her what she was doing and she told me that those were her shoes!  There she goes designing her own shoes already!  Perhaps she'll be a fashion designer!

Then theres her love of singing and dancing.  I mean take a look at this face... is she a future rock star or what?

Then theres her natural artistic ability.  The concentration.  The use of colors.  Totally a budding artist!

Or maybe tattoo artist?

I can't forget the drama.  She literally stood in front of oven one day, staring at her reflection and practicing her sad face.  She has even learned to cry on demand!  Maybe she'll be an actress or a model?

The possibilities are endless!


  1. Love that blogging provides a defacto scrapbook of our wee one's early years. Sweet post!

    1. So true! I've seen other bloggers turn their posts into a book and I'm thinking about doing that. I never kept a baby book but at least I have so much written!

  2. I LOVE looking back at old blog posts. In fact, that I why I did the same prompt for Writer's Workshop. :-)

    1. I rarely look back but I think I will more often! Loved your post by the way!

  3. Definitely a tatoo artist. I see it. Totally. Dropping by from Mama Kat.

  4. Crying on cue is a very valuable talent in this world! :)

    1. So true! The girl definitely knows how to get what she wants!

  5. I would say she could be collecting a lot of shoes when she grows up, that's what happened to me, hahaha!!!
