My dearest Lily,

I know you don’t believe me when I tell you but, soon you will be a big kid too, I promise.

This morning we went to Flamingo Park and you were in heaven.

There were big girls and big boys all around you, no one was smaller than you.

You don’t care much for babies (I don’t blame you, they don’t really do anything) but you are fascinated by big kids.

Big kids can do all the things you long to do. They get to run fast, jump, climb, talk, swing on their own…

As I tried hard to fight back tears while you tried hard to keep up with the big kids, a big smile came over my face.

Don’t we all want to be big when we are small?

I know I did.

Take your time ratinha, you will soon be a big kid.

Love you,


you don’t really care for kids in masks. now you see him, then you don’t

checking out and waving to the big kids

a new move for you
