Stella's Red Balloon
This weekend, Stella went to a birthday party and came home with the above red balloon.
As I was processing photos, I was reminded of another little girl and her "red balloon" story.
When Hailey was 2 years old (she's 16 now), we went to a friend's birthday party. When it was time to leave, she decided that she wasn't yet ready to go. She was furious with me for making her leave. FURIOUS.
As I buckled her into her car seat she yelled these words at me...
"I wish I was a red balloon! I wish I was a red balloon!
So I could go
AND AWAY FROM YOUUU!!!!!!"
I remember thinking, "man this kid is gonna be SOMETHING ESLE when she's a teenager."
But she's really about the easiest teen in the world.
Nowadays, Stella is starting to show some real temper.
Can't wait to see what she comes up with!
