Home stretch

June 16, 2014


This is it. The last week of first grade. Where has the time gone? I swear she was just born and this summer Lillyana will be seven.

The end of the school year always brings new challenges. Not just adjusting to a new schedule with the 8 million camps she wil be attending, but also realizing she is not a baby anymore. I'm not needed to read books - nope, she can do it on her own. She can pick out her own (very stylish) outfits. She can drive herself to school - ok, that is being dramatic - but I can't help but think it is right around the corner.

Until that day comes I will enjoy every minute of the summer. She will make lots of new friends. Invitations will come in the mail and playdates will be scheduled. She'll still need me for lots of things - show tying, hair braiding, and cooking of meals - but she is so self sufficiant, I can't help but be a little sad sometimes.

My little baby is 4.5 days from being a second grader. It's offical. I'm having a meltdown.
