Sometimes the growing up happens too fast...too fast for mommy at least.
Sometimes the growing up just happens too fast.
In the blink of an eye another milestone comes and goes.
And so it was this weekend.
I dropped her off on Saturday after ballet at around noon.
With a quick hug and a wave I was dismissed.
I phoned at around 6 which would be the lastest she ever got home after a playdate.
She was fine. She didn't even want to talk to me.
I was sad.
I sms (text) the mom at 9:30, only to receive a message back that she was peacefully sleeping after going to bed with no complaints.
I phoned at 8:00 the next morning - she was happily playing and....wait for it.... did not even want to say hallo to mom.
My heart broke - my girlchild is all grown up.
She had her first sleepover, and she didn't even miss her mom.
I missed her so much!
I am sure this is just a taste of what the future holds as they get more and more independant and we feel less and less needed.
Another bittersweet moment...
