Independence

I've had this nagging feeling lately. I 've been thinking about Rylie's future as an adult? Will she marry? Will she be independent enough to live on her own? What kind of job will she have? Is college in her future? I haven't stopped to pray about it, but I think God has answered my question. In the last two days Rylie has shown me how independent she is at only five years old. When I brought the groceries home, she just took it upon her self to start putting them away(in the right places too!). She always dresses herself but she has actually been picking out her own outfits and they even match. I walked past the bathroom last night and to my suprise I saw Rylie in there brushing her teeth. I forgot to get her a drink during dinner tonight and she went in the fridge, got a juice box, took the plastic off the straw and put the straw in the box. She ran to the fridge and got Cesalie her bottle this morning when she started to cry. Also this morning we were waiting for her bus and I started to vaccuum, well Rylie just grabbed her coat, put it on, and put her back pack on too. This girl is amazing me!!!! If she can do all this at five, I can only imagine how independent she will be as an adult. That nagging feeling has left...for now.

I think that feeling will always pop up once in a while, but I know our girls are going to do great! It was so awesome to hear all the things Riley is doing. It really helps us moms of younger children. Thanks for sharing.

It does sound like she is quite the Miss Indepenent lately! I love it when they surprise us with the things they know how to do and we didn't expect it :)

that's wonderful. My son is 24 and he surprises me with things I didn't know he could do, or say.
