One day in October a few years ago, we came home with a little tiny baby with a head of ice blonde hair. Everything about her was so delicate – from her impossibly tiny nose to her almost see-through little salamander toes.
And then I blinked and she grew into a sassy five year old who is a walking encyclopedia of sea creature facts that moves around the house with a menagerie of stuffed animals.
Now she’s wearing kid’s size 12 shoes. Twelve, guys.
And to celebrate this milestone, she clearly needed her first pair of Chuck Taylors in her favorite color: bubblegum pink.
As I think about how far we’ve come over the past five years, I fight back tears as I realize how fast it has flown by.
But I also think I want a pair of fun, pink Converse for myself.
