I'm so sad.

My heart aches, yet I'm so proud at the same time!

Gosh, all I can think of is the years of having my little girl home with me are gone. We had a lot of fun ~ play dates, outings, visits.... Part of me still thinks maybe I should have done *more* with her.

Where did all the years go??

I just want to put my arms around her and hug her so tight and never let go. I wish she could stay five forever.

She's off to school.... kindergarten!! Big school for my big girl.

Love you, my Val-Gal!

(please excuse me in my gym clothes!)


  1. Ugh. I just did a post about the same. My heart hurts. It has been a difficult week.

    I will tell you that the fun is just beginning.

  2. You've got a LOT of years ahead of for a continually developing relationship with a continually developing person.

    And an increasingly independent person. Would you want to have an 18 yr.old who still needs to be reminded to change underwear, put this and that away, and produce food and clothes and entertainment for her?

    (OK--I know there are lots of "older" kids who need reminders about stuff like that, but do you want someone to be permanently dependeent on you?)
