a tear in my eye

ty's mom is in town for the week and accompanied us to lucy's "meet and greet day" at preschool. abby was equally excited to come with and see lucy's cool. the only thing i was worried about was signing up in time on the babysitting list for the classroom pets. lucy was very adamant about getting in on that action. so (i think i say so much too much) we head up to the classroom, open the door. and...i totally start to tear up.
a real classroom.
a cubby with lucy's name on it.
little miniature sinks and toilets and charts and, and, and...
bahhhhh! my baby is growing up! she is almost 5.
how old does that make me?

never mind the last question. i just couldn't believe my weepy insides. blame it on the raging hormones.
but we did get a delicious lunch out of it (thanks camille) with aunt tar bear at the museum of art. the cream of asparagus soup helped buoy me up for the rest of the day.

what is up with her posing lately?

i don't know i'm going to break the news to abby that she can't go play on this everyday.

lucy, abby and neighbor lizzy who is also in her class.

auntie t. the frosh. i'll try not to abuse her too much for babysitting this year.

Raging hormones - if only that were really the reason! :) But our parents let us do it, so we let them do it.

Lucy is going to have such a great time and Abby will get the chance to become THE BIG SISTER to baby while Lucy is gone. It'll be a wonderful thing for both of them and for you.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who sometimes has a hard time with my child hitting milestones......I just want to keep him a baby forever sometimes. I always am having the thought....if I am a wreck now how will I be when his actually moving out, going to college, or leaving on a mission? I guess Amy March said it right, "we all have to grow up someday." drat.

I felt the same way when Estefan went to school. I think it'll be worse with Allie. She's my little baby girl!!
