Sorry for the completely vanilla post but today was such an emotional day for me. Today was the beginning of yet another school year and were milestone days for each of my girls.
The oldest...well it was the first day of her senior year. It seems like just a few months ago, she was my little baby. Daddy and I ask each other all the time "how is it that she is SO grown up?". And she looked so pretty this morning! I complimented her and asked "why are you so dressed up?". She said "well mom, today is my last first day of school and I wanted to look nice". All through the day, I thought about what she said and kept getting choked up. Darn it...I'm even doing it now just trying to write this post.
The youngest (my little hot-headed fashionista that thinks I am a complete embarrassment to all man-kind)...this was her last first day of elementary school. I feels like my heart is completely breaking as I watch her childhood, and all it's sweet innocence, slipping right through my fingers.
I'm not a perfect mother, not even close, but I know how much I love them and I can only hope one day they understand just how proud they made me each and every day.
