Especially when she's wearing flip-flops. Which she loves.
We tell her, "Don't run in your flip-flops." But it's just so hard to walk carefully, no matter what we're doing. We tell her, "Be careful, slow down!" as she runs, full gallop down our steep gravel driveway, most often staying upright and enthused for more.
What I do know is that my little girl is growing up faster than I care to admit. She's putting her own band-aids on now--a first--and even more than that? She says, "Mama, I just need to be alone for a minute" as she collects herself on the steps. Thankfully, she's still all about hugging and snuggling and being carried in my arms.
Cuz if she wasn't, I'd be the one sitting on the steps looking for a band-aid.
