.........a journey

Going to pick up my girls from the airport tomorrow... I missed them more this summer than I usually do. I think it's because they're getting older and will soon leave the nest.

I always do my spring cleaning while they're gone, and I've been working on the 13 year old's room this morning. She has a very small room, but chose it because it has a walk-in closet... In reorganizing that closet, I've found so many remnants of her younger years. Many Barbie items, Bratz dolls and all the accessories... I've found homework papers stashed in a shoe box from 4th grade, and pictures of her and all her friends dressed up as the Scooby Doo bunch for Halloween... I've also found misc. gum and M & M wrappers stashed in various corners and boxes. lol I've also found some of the things that are more "current" for her.... her flute, which has a proper name, "Melody"(still a little girl on the inside), her cheerleading uniform from last year, her ugly black band shoes and MANY bracelets, charms, journals, diaries, etc. It's almost like I'm seeing her transition from being a little girl to a young woman in just this one closet...

I remember this feeling when my oldest daughter was making her journey... It was difficult, but somehow this one is getting to me a little more. This is the baby!

My girls are both social butterflies and into many extra activities; they run me ragged, tell me I'm older than dirt and that it's disgusting that I would even consider kissing a man... But if I could stop time for a little while and keep them just like they are right now, I think I'd do it... just for a little while longer......
