My child will be this old...
My niece "KJ", turned 7 this summer. I was at the hospital when she was born. Besides my own child's birth (where my attendance was absolutely required), she's the only other child I've greeted within hours of birth.
And now, she's S-E-V-E-N!
In seven short years, KJ has become a reader, a writer, a bicycle-rider, a swimmer, a soccer-playing, school-attending, nurturing, considerate, artistic, self-sufficient, animal-loving, sweet young lady.
While I wish these days could slow down a bit, I'm so grateful to have a niece and nephew who have "gone before us" and made the next few years look like so much fun!
