Today I dropped Anibel off at a little girl's birthday party...and left.
I know! I wasn't prepared. Anibel and I walked hand in hand 5 doors down to little Katie's party. In my head I am thinking, "this will be good. Anibel will get to meet some new kids. I will get to meet some neighborhood parents." Wrong. I showed up, girls are running around with party hats and parents are saying, "Have fun, I'll be back at 4pm!"
I was caught off guard. My little girl is growing up. I can just drop her off at a birthday party now.
I've crossed that line. And I'm not sure I am ready to...
I was told once it would happen all to fast. The growing up that is. And during the sleepless nights all I could think was, "Not fast enough." But now I think they are right. It is happening all too fast.
