Four tomorrow

She got up this morning and said, “Mommy, I need to talk to you.”
She sounded troubled, maybe even a little scared. Her bedroom was still dark, since the sun was just coming up. I asked her what she needed.
“Today is my last day ever being three,” she confided.

I felt a lot of emotion at this. She wants to be big so badly, but growing up is frightening, and she does so love being small. Not being three anymore, that’s a forever change. Today is her last chance to be something she’ll never be again. Tomorrow’s all uncertain, and soon today will be gone. My little girl, four years old already! I don’t think she can believe it either. I want to keep her little always and never let anything hurt her, but I need to let her grow and make mistakes and feel pain, because it means she’ll be living and trying and experiencing everything she can at three, four, five, and all the years.

I hugged her and told her not to worry, because even if she is four tomorrow, she’ll always be Maggie.
