Bittersweet Milestones

As I told you last week, we have had so much going on here at home.  While it is always with such pride & joy that I watch my daughters excel in their accomplishments, it is also with a heavy heart.  Last week was the end of a chapter for me.  My little Lulu graduated preschool.  That's right, my baby is heading off to Kindergarten in the fall & Mommy is in full pity-party mode!  The Mr. has tried to be supportive as he's watched this emotional roller coaster from the sidelines.  And by supportive I mean he's poured himself lots of extra cocktails to help ease my sorrows.

So I will begin to try and graciously prepare myself for this next phase in life.  A phase where I am the mother of two little ladies & not babies.  A phase where another becomes the teacher.  A phase where both my children spend more time with their new teachers than with the one who taught them to love unconditionally.  A phase where I will have to let go just a little (baby steps here, people!)
I know I should be thankful for all of my blessings (& I am!)  I just didn't expect those blessings to grow up so quickly....
