Getting ready for what?...you may ask.
And being the sap that I am, I had to fight back tears the whole morning.
It's all happening so fast. This year is already flying by and I feel paralyzed by the fact that in less than a year, she will be in college.
How can this be? How can my little baby be such a grown young woman?
How am I old enough to have a child going into college? And let me just tell you, I am really struggling with that one!
The other day, I received an email with a reminder to be visiting colleges while out on Fall Break. It really felt like a kick in the gut. Logically, I know we need to be doing this already but it was the reality of it that hit me so hard.
Holy crap...college applications are due in just a few short months. We are more than halfway through September. This year is going to be over before I know it.
Senior pictures today...
Cap and gown fittings next week...
And soon, all the other joys that senior year brings!
It's all happening whether I want it to or not.
But all I see every time I look at her is the beautiful little girl we brought into this world, And while I so look forward to seeing what life has in store for her, I just wish time would slow down, even if just for a little while.
