Time is passing just as I suspected….kids are growing just as I was told…..Life is moving as fast as a scooter wheel rolling on the pavement of the road that takes us home…..I am quite during times of these realizations…..I am still……I deliberately breathe it all in to fill my bones with these sweet moments in present time that melt into instant memories…..
T Tatum started Kindergarten this year with a quick “love you Mom” and a grin from ear to ear. She was up and dressed in fifteen minutes and thought the idea of taking cottage cheese, six carrots and 10 red grapes was the best choice for a quick-lunch in between meeting new friends. She is my little doll…the doll I had dreams of playing with one day when I was playing with my dolls in my room as a little girl….I am so proud and so eager to see her year after year….become…..herself…..
First thing her teacher said when picking her up from class was, “I think we have a little artist in our class”.
We both looked at each other and smiled.
Tatum and I are best friends……LOVE is strong…..Mothers and daughters are too…….
