All grown up

Everytime Courtney does some new thing or gets to a new milestone, I feel like I have lost my little baby, but this one is a big one! Courtney has a favorite blanket that is basically in shambles. I have know we need to get rid of it but am terrified that she will go to pieces. So yesterday Dave says, "Courtney, we need to cut this up and throw it away." Courtney starts to scream, "No, no, no." Then she decides that she wants to throw it out. She gets the scissors and Dave cuts the blanket in half, giving her the worst side to throw out. After she throws it away, Dave gives her the other half and says, "Now you can have that until it's old." She just takes it and throws it away too. Are you kidding me? Of course, I saved the good piece in case she needs it but it's been a day now and she hasn't even asked for it. I knew this day would come, just not so soon. Ok, so she is almost four, but still. I am very proud of her for becoming such a big girl.
