All week I’ve been asking myself, how did I let this happen? She was just a squishy little peanut folded into my arms, what seemed not that long ago. I know she is beyond ready to spread those wings, , full of energy, charisma, and wonder. You light up a room as soon as you enter. Leaving her sad little face was heartbreaking. I love watching her grow, but it also means grieving the stages that have come to pass. Motherhood is certainly not for the weak.
