Baby and Me

Dear Ponyo,
When did you decide to be a 4 year old ?
Was it the day you were born?
Was it the day I did not fret over you crying because I knew from experience it was nothing to fret about ?
Was it because I was too absorbed in my own troubles to notice you were growing from a baby to a toddler ?

Whatever it was Ponyo, I owe you.
I owe you some baby behavior.
Some letting go of some tantrums
Some smiling when you do something silly
Some hugs and cuddles and play time in my lap
Some endless lying next to you in the dark wondering when you will fall asleep.

Dear ponyo,
Will you then promise,
Not to grow up in such a hurry ?
