She's Off and Running...

She headed off for her big girl adventure without me today.Her sister was nearby to help and guide her along the path to a whole new world.But I was the one being left behind as they got on the bus and waved goodbye.

It's hard for me to imagine that this little person who sometimes seems like such a snuggly little baby girl is really a big 5 year old who can handle herself with ease and has so much spunk. When I asked her yesterday if she thought she might need me to help her get on the bus, she answered very matter-of-factly..."mommy my legs aren't broken". And she was right. She is fully capable of making all of these first big steps into the world without me.

I'm just not so sure I am ready to face the world without her by my side.
