My youngest is a preschool graduate. It's amazing how quickly the years passed from when I started dropping my oldest off to now, seven short years later. I cried. Not because I'm particularly sad, but because I'm letting go of a part of my little girl. She'll soon be in elementary school...losing teeth, having homework, playing hot lava monster on the playground.
Whenever one of life's transitions hits me, I think of the movie, Hope Floats. I love the ending when Sandra Bullock says, "Beginnings are usually scary, endings are usually sad, but it's what in the middle that counts."
My daughter brings so much love and silliness to our family. When her teachers sent home her portfolio, it included her answers to questions regarding her parents.
It's amazing how our children see us.
