Ever After




Posted in: Uncategorized

Blink . . .you’ve gone from high school senior with unlimited opportunities to college grad with vast career options.

Blink . . . your first born is placed in your arms and you don’t want to think about career . . . but you must.

Blink . . . she’s entering Kindergarten and your rewarding career has put food in her mouth and roof o’er her head.

Blink . . . another sweet baby girl graces your life. You walk away from your career. You miss it and wonder if you can ever feel fulfilled again.

Blink . . . a sweet baby boy joins the family and thrives despite early setbacks. You can’t imagine trading a minute of this magical time for a career.

Blink . . . you watch your middle schooler and kindergartener walk away and you agonize that this day arrived so quickly.

Blink . . . to clear the tears that pool in your eyes and stream down your face.

Today sucks.

I miss you, my sweet girls.

    What beautiful girls! I’m sure they are doing fine – even if your not, but you are in my thoughts – enjoy the one on one time with your little boy!

    It is a sad day. Just think about all of the time you spent with her over the last year. You prepared Vivi for today! She looked so cute walking into the school with a big smile on her face. Hang in there!

    very very true!! Oh my Ariana is so grown up looking. Not that little girl I babysat. Lu and Ari look so much a like. Miss Vivi well you can’t be a kindergartner and you too look so grown up! Did you survive the day?

    Wow, Ariana started middle school?!?! Where did the time go? She looks so much more grown up and teenagerish since we last saw you guys in December. Scary, scary, scary. I can’t believe Vivi’s in kindergarten either.
