As I was sitting there watching the make-up artist from the studio, do miss Destiny’s make-up, it felt like her childhood flashed in front of me. My heartfelt heavy and cried. She will always be my little girl, but my little girl is now growing up to become someone special and do amazing things.
She no longer asks me to blow on her hot food that it is too hot, for me to tie her shoes or read her bedtime stories. I remembered the days, she wanted to be held and fell asleep on my lap or even the days she threw a tantrum in the story to get what she wanted. And no, I left her there to cry and told her when she was done, that, I would be in the next aisle…lol.
Yeah, I was a though loving mom to my kids. No worries, I still have a heart that beats for them.
However, today just hit me hard. She is now a senior and the last one to graduate from high school in our household. Maybe, it hit me that I am getting older as well…lol. Who knows!?!?!
This will be a year to wrecking with that one cannot see what lies ahead. Not to mention, this darn COVID hot mess that it is unpredictable.
As we prepare our kids for this crazy world, who prepares us? We always knew that we had to prepare them for this world and to be on their own. But who thought that we also needed to be handheld and guided through all this? This world we now live in is pretty scary, but we hope that we gave our children the right tools to navigate through this HOT MESS of a world.
Senior pictures were done by Cady Studios that she got the experience of someone else and not just her mom. No worries, I will still be taken her pictures that we both have some crazy ideas! I did get a few behind the scenes. Oh, you knew I would…lol. She was treated like a film star, from getting her make-up done to her hair.
Nonetheless, I am so proud of her and grateful and blessed, for being able to be her mother and giving the opportunity to watch her grow into something amazing and can’t wait for her to write her own pages and share them with me.
Let this crazy senior year begin….
