They really do grow up so fast

Filed under: Victoria — Lex @ 3:04 pm

One of the presents Victoria got for Christmas was an Old Navy knapsack from our goddaughter, Tiny E, who’s now in first grade and is, therefore, the font of all wisdom, at least if you’re 4 1/2 like V. On the same day, we were over at Southpoint Mall in Durham, God help us, when Ann saw a pink alarm clock somewhere — Pottery Barn Kids, if I recall correctly — that she just had to get for V.

Between those two items, V. transformed, literally overnight last night, from a little girl who couldn’t be bothered to get up to go to school (i.e., day care) in the mornings to one who set her own alarm clock, got up on her own and got dressed on her own, correctly, with no parental input, all before breakfast. “She’s all ready for kindergarten,” Ann announced cheerily. Well, maybe so, but I’m not.
