That's my baby

Kind of a hard to see picture, but..

That is Allison, my sweet four year old. She had her end of year program at her school last night. That's her, walking out, looking for us in the audience.. She saw us about 30 seconds after this picture was taken and her whole face just lit up.. it was a very sweet moment..

They showed a slideshow of pictures set to music for each class in the school.. I kept whispering to my husband that I was sure I was going to cry.. somehow, miraculously, I held it together. Crying is for next year, when she'll wear a yellow cap and gown...and no, I will not hold it together then.. I am a sappy, sappy mommy, yes i am.

Oh - and thanks for all of the sweet birthday wishes.. It was a great day.. a little introspective, but I need that every so often.. and spent with my family, so, couldn't ask for it better than that.

Take Care,

Happy Birthday! I forgot we are born during the same week! I am the sixteenth of May! Yippee! I wish you all the best for the year ahead! Great big hugs across country heading your way. Sounds like it was a lot like my birthday this year. (Which was just what was needed!)
God Bless!

She looks so cute in her pretty dress! I think you have every right to cry at all the milestones your daughter's will go through!

What a cutie. I'm sure you were very proud. Glad you had a good day. I often have introspective b-days. They are a good time to take stock.

Kid's grow so fast! Blink and they are in school then out of school. One of mine is graduating from high school this year. I know I will cry. I'm tearing up just typing this.
