This morning was the top 25 student breakfast at my daughters high school. I have been to college visits, mailed out my first payment to the college she has chosen and yet it hasn't seemed real. Today hearing "Think back to September of 1997, all the misty eyes as you sent your child off to Kindergarten and now they graduate in 3 weeks..." That is when it hit me...my little girl is growing up. Although there are so many new wonderful things to look forward to , things will never be quite the same. Allison is a wonderful girl that still asks if she can go places and when she should come home. Soon she will make all her own decisions and not even sleep under my roof. Yes this is a normal part of growing up but I can't help but wish she would stay at home and be my little girl forever.
There are many reading this that have already experienced this and understand just how I feel. There are also many just starting out with their little kids. Remember to treasure the time for it is true , it will pass quicker than you truly can ever imagine.
