Baby No More

Today is not a very good day for us. RJ is sick and so she will miss her scouting and all her subjects. She came home from school yesterday not feeling very well. Last night she did not want to eat so I was obliged to feed her before giving her meds. While feeding her, I realized how big she has grown. Our baby is baby no more. I guess in a year or two we will need to change her bed with a bigger one.

I was supposed to sleep with her in the bedroom last night to monitor her temperature but she said she can manage. OUCH! I am proud that our daughter is growing up with independence but apparently there are times she does not need Mommy’s help anymore and it hurts sometimes. Yes, she won. She slept alone and I slept with hubby but was forced to set the alarm of my clock to every four hours to monitor her temperature and give her meds.

RJ is big girl now but I cannot help myself seeing her as my baby. How I miss the days that I have to feed her because she cannot eat on her own yet and how I miss the nights she sleeps with us in one room and crawls on our bed because she had a bad dream. But that is how parents’ life is. Time will come that our handholding with her would end and she will need to make her own footprints in the sands of her life. When that time comes, we are confident that she can make it because she is sensible, independent, and have big faith in God.

They grow up really fast. But you know what, even if our children are in their teens, and even older, they will always remain our babies.

I understand how you feel. Parents will always treat their youngest as a baby no matter how old they are. I still treat my nine year old youngest daughter as a baby too especially since her mommy is in the US working. RJ will turn out to be a responsible and dependable person when she grows up because of the great training she received from you. I pray for RJ’s divine healing. By the stripes of Jesus she is healed. Amen. Thanks for the post. God b less you all always.
