The Preschool Years....

...are coming to an end.

Next week marks the end of the preschool years. Yes it is. And it just blows my mind.

Emily was a mere baby yesterday.. wasn't she?

She has her spring show and graduation next week. There is no doubt that I will be a crying mess. Although, I said I would be at Allison's pre-k graduation, and I wasn't...that much. But this has a definite harder feel to it.. I have no more babies. I have no more kids to go through pre-school with.

But even with a heavy heart, I feel excited for the things to come. Watching Allison grow through kindergarten has been nothing but joyful. And with each phase the girls have been through - even when I didn't feel ready to watch them go and grow - I was.

Even though this big part of me is sad to see my girls grow up, the bigger part of me is excited to see them grow up... and they will always be my babies even when they are too big to carry. (Luckily with my short and small genes, they are still not too big to carry.)

Happy Tuesday!

Awwww, it's so hard to let them grow up! Thank goodness for small genes that allow for lots of cuddles. :)

Your short and small genes comment made me crack up. I still carry Ellie around, all 44 lbs of her! I never thought I'd thank my lucky stars for my hips. lol.

It's the end of one era, but like you said, the beginning of the next. Watching our girls grow up is so very exciting; it's like getting to relive your own childhood, right? Every milestone they reach, we think back, "I remember when I did that!" Watching Ellie grow, day by day, makes me smile for sure.

I can't wait to see you!!!!

Awe! I know I'm finding watching them grow up is bittersweet. They make you so proud. It's just going so quickly.
