I mentioned last week that my baby was promoted from Jr. high last week. It seems like just yesterday I dropped this little one off at preschool and I cried everyday for the first month and she cried every day for the second month.
Please allow me to brag for a moment... I'm one proud mommy. She was awarded the Principals Honor roll for achieving a 4.0 GPA for all two years of jr. high.
She is funny and sweet and kind and generous. She is intense and hard on herself and driven and controlling. It's almost harder to parent this girlie because she is so grown up. I'm always encouraging her to not worry, to let things go... to be a young girl and not worry about things only grown ups should worry about.
Parenting is hard and usually i'm so sad to see these milestones come and go. I cry and cry for weeks at the mere mention of a graduation or sometimes even a birthday. It's usually Niguel that gets me, she paves the way and all these milestones are new. One year later when Kylah passes these same milestones I'm not nearly as emotional. Could be that i've done it and know what to expect but mostly there is much more of a "whew we made it" associated with it.
Things are changing for me now. I hardly cried this past week and I had a graduation and a birthday! I can feel the tides changing. I'm not so sad and i'm starting to feel more excited for all the things to come. Excited to see how these girls lives unfold and how they soar. I'm excited to see how all this hard work of parenting works out. I'm thinking its going to be amazing!
I just finished blogging for this whole week so stop by and see whats up all week long. Have a blessed week.
