Wow, time sure flies by! My oldest, my first born baby girl, Samantha, is promoting from middle school and moving up to “big girl” school, I mean high school tomorrow.
Future freshman and counting down.
I can’t believe it. It seems like I was just dropping her off at preschool.
I’m so excited for her! Yet, completely petrified as well. She is 14, beautiful face, petite body and the most amazing and beautiful soul! She isn’t a mean girl, she loves all humans that are nice and kind. She is obsessed with 70’s and 80’s music and tells me my 90’s music sucks 😒. She is an old soul, who loves to be a homebody and binge watch TV while we eat ice cream together.
That’s all going to change, I know.
Becoming a Freshman means being that much closer to becoming an adult. Four years from now, it’s all going to be different. She is going to really start trying to find out who she is in the next year or two, make new friends and ditch the old ones. Meet someone she will fall in love with and get her heart broken. Discover new opportunities. That’s high school. That’s what happens.
I just hope she stays the kind and sweet natured girl who wears her heart on her sleeve and will fall over when overly excited while crying over the smallest gestures.
Time is limited, we have 4 years left together. Let’s make those the most amazing four years of our lives. I want to protect her while letting her grow into a woman. I want to push her but hold her back to save her from all the bad that comes with adulting. I want nothing but the best for her, I will always be her number 1 cheerleader and love her deeply. I want to watch her grow into this beautiful woman she is becoming but I also wish she was that perfect tiny 3 year old who loved to watch The Wiggles and dance with me in the living room.
I want nothing but the best for her, whomever she decides to become. Buckle up momma, it’s going to be a bumpy 4 years of tears, smiles and grunts.
Congratulations on being an A/B honor roll student my sweet teen, you worked so hard this year on all your subjects and have blossomed beautifully to becoming a high schooler!
