My gosh...what a year its been. It's been one big thing after another, and the year isn't even half way over. My oldest daughter turned 7 and it hit me like ..."Whoa!, oh my gosh, in three years she's going to be ten, then thirteen and boys and mean girls, and I hope she's not the mean girl." (You all know how I can jump the gun.)
Well today my 4 year old "graduated" from Pre-K. Wow! What a milestone. It was fabulous. the class performed two songs and a dance; and they did a great job.
All this activity, moving on to the next phase...it's natural yes, but somewhat unsettling. My kids are reaching the time when they have their own opinions, and they know enough to back up their arguments. Its so _______ (fill in the blank). I honestly don't have words for it. It's like a pinch, saying "wake up; they aren't meant to be kids forever". On one hand I don't want them to grow up, but on the other I don't want to be cleaning up after them forever.
So many mixed emotions. I can't even get my thoughts together. Suffice it to say, I am so happy for my girls and really am looking forward to the next chapter and whatever it brings.
