Impossible.


It's not possible that you are graduating from high school today. I know they say time flies but this is ridiculous.

It was only 5 minutes ago that you were walking through the house with my belts wrapped around your diaper doing your Jack Benny impression (even though you had no idea who Jack Benny was) and swinging on your tree swing in the backyard with wild, happy abandon. I could swear just the other day you "married" Eddie Garza and had your Harriet the Spy birthday party in the playhouse. It seems so recent that I can touch you dressed up as a sunflower for Halloween. Can it really be that long since we were the Gilmore Girls looking for our new adventures?

And now I am excited for your new adventures. I will miss you as a constant source of entertainment for me but it's time for you to fly. So let's kiss high school goodbye and move onto the good stuff.

Happy travels, darlin' pie. xoxo

Made me cry on a Saturday. Hard and beautiful moments. Been there. Very sweet.

Too fast, too fast. It's one of many reasons why I tell mine that "you're going to be a grown up for the rest of your life, slow down and be a kid while it lasts." From one doting mommy to another, blessings.

Happy graduation Spencer! SO excited for you, the good is just getting started. College is a blast. Study hard, have fun, and yes, call your mother.

UGH! gutted. mine is only 4 and i love having these reminders of how fast it all goes. i always squeeze and hug 10 seconds longer than is "allowed" right now for this very reason. i am always caught staring and am often brought to tears by the little angles of her face, how still baby like they are how her skin is still like brushed silk.

Mine graduated the day after yours. What an emotional year this has been of 'lasts'. You are so wise to look forward. I am gradually getting there. :)
