When did it happen?

February 26, 2010

When did this little girl grow up? I can’t deny it any longer… this young lady has her driver’s permit and this Mom can not deny that her little girl is growning up. As she eagerly showed me her permit yesterday, I smile and tried relish in her excitement, but what I was doing was crying inside as my heart was being ripped out. She’s growing up and I can’t stop it…

She is indeed growing up...into a fine young woman:) Be proud! And remember, even though you can't stop time, she will always be your little girl:)

ive been through that 5 times and have one more left to get his permit in a couple years and it never gets easier. they grow up and it brings great joy to see them do so,but at the same time sadness, because you want to protect them FOREVER:) one thing is for sure you are MOM and she is yours and that never changes.
blessings,
aimee

I know what you mean...my little brother {although I call him my 'little big brother' since he is 6ft tall} got his license this year and just turned 17. I remember changing his diapers when I was in middle school and my heart giving in to any of his desires when he would reach his hands out saying "peas" for please. They really do grow up so fast...well enjoy these years while they last! I know they will be bittersweet...

What beautiful red hair she has!!! My oldest is 8 now, and I can hardly believe she's not a baby anymore! Hope you had a nice weekend Sheila!
