I had a Mommy moment today as Daisy, Willow & I were driving to the fabric store. We were driving on the free way, just singing our hearts out to Taylor Swift, when all of a sudden I looked in the rear view mirror and watched Daisy in the back singing about Romeo & Juliet. This giant rush of emotion filled by body and I just started crying. It just hit me that she was growing up. That she was really mine. And there we were just singing away having a great time- and I had a daughter. My heart filled up with so much love that it over flowed from me and I just let the tears fall. I have this remarkable chance to be a Mother, and although I am so imperfect, I pray for a million more moments like todays, to prove I am worthy of being their Mama.

Grace had her first day of preschool this morning and she was thrilled to take her back pack filled with treasures! She picked out her very own folder, and packed her box of crayons, glue sticks, scissors and pencils. She felt pretty grown up, finally getting to do the things Tristin & Daisy were doing (like school work & pick out school supplies! Who doesn't love that?) She had a great time and I love that we are doing it just once a week on Thursdays from 9:00- 11:00 AM. I know it sounds terrible, but I didn't want my schedule to get too crazy and with Daisy in school M,W & every other Friday, I didn't want too many things on my plate that I would probably end up forgetting at some point.
The other kids are doing great in school so far and come home tired, but eager to share their day. It's pretty crazy that I have 2 kids in school now. Wasn't I just 18, like yesterday???
