21 years ago today I was getting ready to be driven to the hospital to have a baby girl...today, that girl drove herself out of here to return to her apartment at college.
I'm not sure how this is humanly possible.
Her old bedroom (which used to be my old bedroom) is now my office; I can decorate and accessorize it to my heart's content.
Yet there are many days I wish it were still filled with curling irons, styling spray, contact lens cases and various bottles of perfume.
She's loud and occasionally obnoxious and a bit bossy.....
But I miss hearing her sing to her stereo and yell out my name a hundred times a day.
I always tell my children I didn't have them so that they could grow up and leave me, but....
they do anyway.
And amazingly, that's the way it's supposed to be.
Just takes a little getting used to.
