The Last Time


It’s Blake’s birthday month. She’ll be five soon. Where did the time go? Wasn’t it just yesterday when she was this big?!

Blake Birth

She also started “big” school this week. I’m both happy and sad at the same time. I’m happy that she’s finally going to school, she’s going to meet new friends, she’s going to have fun instead of just staying at home doing nothing. 

But I’m also scared $hit that we are letting her get on a school bus all by herself (I used to drive her to nursery and then she’ll be picked up by her nanny). What if she falls asleep and the driver forgets her inside? #sepanx

I’m teaching her to be independent but I dread the day she’ll no longer need me! It reminded me of this poem I found in one of the mommy blogs I frequent. 



I always get teary eyed whenever I read this but it’s such a beautiful piece. I like it so much that I had it printed so I can mount it somewhere in our house.
