The first day of school; for some it is sad, for others it is joyful and for many it is overwhelming.
For the last two years Princess’ first day of school has been thrilling, the new teacher, the new friends, the gained independence, the steps towards becoming the amazing woman I know she is destined to become.
But today, I logged onto my computer, uploaded the pictures and did a comparison… my heart stopped and my eyes welled. How did I forget that she was once so small? How did I miss that year?
In the space of one year, 365 days, she has blossomed from being barely out of toddlerdom into a beautiful young lady.
She is gracious, polite,intelligent, funny, snarky, silly, friendly, sarcastic and witty. I am blown away by her, and looking at these pictures, I am both saddened and proud.
My heart is outside of my body and is doing just fine on it’s own.
