She’s a Grownup

Even when she changes from baby to toddler, always saying that favorite new word, No!

Even when she starts school, climbing up into that big yellow bus and waving goodbye

Even when she reaches those turbulent middle school years and actually becomes a teen

Even when she walks across the stage and receives that high school diploma and then packs up and moves into her college dorm

Even when she earns a college degree and starts the first job of her career

Even when she finds her true love and gets married

You still think of her as your baby…

And it always surprises (and delights) you when she acts like an adult

I had a moment this past weekend that made me stop and think, my baby is a grownup!

    It hit me hard recently when I heard my daughter give a speech with wisdom and beautiful word choice. It was a proud and humble feeling at the same time. I like the way you gave a line to the milestones of growing up.

    I know many parents who feel this way and share that same sense of pride.

    Mine are 13, 10, and 9, and I just can’t imagine them all grown up yet. It goes so fast. How proud you must be.

    I think that all the time with my soon to be 30 year old daughter!! I tell her she will always be my baby! She is a mother of two and always tells me… “ mom I’m turning into you!” She recognizes why I did the things I did and still continue to do the things I do…a mother’s love is forever!!

    It happens too fast!I love how you visited all the significant life changes. (Are you becoming a grandma soon? Or is that someone else?)
