After I got out of the shower yesterday, there was a note on the mirror that was revealed by the steam : "Happy Bday Mom!" Say it with me now...awwww! How sweet is that?!? It was right there in that moment, when I realized that it's what I already have that really matters. Then my parents come down from the big MC. They had just spoiled Damon and a friend for 4 days - entertaining them and letting them do whatever they wanted to do - and now they drove down for my birthday! They gave me a card that said this :
Things a Daughter Teaches Her Parents
that raising your own princess beats any fairy tail;
that a lot of great big people can be wrapped around one little finger;
that a daughter's smile is better than sunshine;
that you can never have too many hugs or memories...(or phones);
that time flies unless your daughter is on a date;
that a girl can make her parents happy, proud, confused, and a little bit crazy all at the same time;
that letter go is a whole lot harder than it looks;
and most of all, that there's a kind of joy that only comes from watching an adorable little girl grow into a lovely and much-loved woman.
I also get a little sad that school is starting for many, many reasons, but most of all because my baby will be in high school. I don't think I'm ready for this.
