She’s My Little 2nd Grader Now

My daughter is about to graduate 1st grade. I remember all the concerns expressed by family and friends about her starting so early, yet here we are. My little future Rhodes Scholar is finishing a milestone. She actually fell asleep reading her elementary school yearbook tonight, muttering names of friends from the schoolyard.

It took me 12 long years to have a child, and she will unfortunately be my only one. As I start to feel the effects of my age challenged by her youth, I am both excruciatingly exhausted, and optimistically energized by the life she gives me.

I couldn’t be more proud. SHE BLOWS MY MIND!
