I had a Baby once

Wednesday, May 13, 2009



Now she is tall. She is going to university in the fall. She drives. She stays up later than I do. She wears my clothes, and looks better in them. I use to make her clothes. Still do, sometimes. She knows how to work my Mac better than I do. She built a car and was the driver for the race. She is funny. She is helpful and loving. I know she must go. I want her to go. I also want her to stay. I want to hear her squeaky little girl voice again. I want to brush her baby curls into pig tails, wrap the hair around my fingers and watch the banana curls bounce around her wee ears.

I feel blessed that I have been granted a short reprieve from having a totally empty nest of my own. All of my babies are grown and on their own (for the most part). It certainly will be difficult to pack the girl off to college, but I also cannot wait to see you bask in her success!!!

Puanani stop making me cry.
I knew that baby and now she looks like you.

Oh, *tear*...

She's so lovely. I can see the pretty baby in her still, amidst the lovely young woman...

I don't know what to say to make it truly better. The obvious things I know you already know.

I also know I'm not ready yet, for any such things over here... and can't imagine ever being so.

My heart is with you
