As my friends come to terms with the fact that today was the last day of school for their high school seniors, I am sitting here wondering how my little girl has grown up so quickly. No, she isn’t graduating high school or even heading to high school in the fall. She is 2 yrs old. But as I uploaded photos from yesterday’s tumbling class (the last day for this school year), I realized how much she has changed and grown since last August. She hasn’t been a baby for a while and she isn’t even a toddler anymore. She is a little girl.
I can only imagine how difficult the last day of Harper’s high school career will be for me. (or even her first day of kindergarten for that matter) So for now, I will happily embrace her new independence…. “No mommy, I do it!”…… knowing that it generally ends with “HELP! pwease mommy” when she is unable to do the task on her own. And I will cherish all the moments, days, weeks, months, and years until she walks across that stage to receive her diploma (in 2028). And just so she knows….even at that moment, she will still be my little girl.
