Today has been a very nice day.

Me hiding from the camera
I was able to spend some quality time with my teenage daughter looking for the rest of her prom things.  It started out with coffee downtown as we just chatted with each other about life and breaking her curfew.    I also broke it to her gently that my blog post about her curfew happened to make it into the Mountain Express.    She said that she was used to people knowing things about her since I happen to blog about every move that she makes. 

To clarify, I don’t blog about every move that she makes just the funny moves that she makes!

*smile*  As we headed to the Mall we were holding hands and she asked me if I was upset that she is getting older.  My response was what any mothers would have been, “I just hope that I have been a good mother to you, like you have deserved.”  This conversation left us both crying. 

I am very proud of my daughter and the young woman that she has become.  She’s amazing.  She really is amazing.  I know that where ever her life leads her she will be amazing at it.  I am saddened to know that she will be graduating high school this year because to me she will always be my baby.   I am very proud of her.  We all are. 


We found the perfect prom shoes and earrings to go with her dress and that made us very happy.  The wonderful ladies at Liberty Street Baggage are going to made her a clutch with the extra fabric from her dress after it gets hemmed.  I love those two ladies so much and I’m so thankful to be able to help them the way that I can. 

I’m in a really sappy mood these days.  What’s up with that?

Yesterday I was listening to Damien Rice, Matt Hales and Sarah McLachlan.  I happen to tweet about being on a Sarah McLachlan kick and SARAH messaged me back on Facebook!  I was on cloud nine because I’ve always been a fan of her music. 


Right now I’m listening to her music again while typing this up because it fits my mood at the moment.   

I guess I will bid you all a good night.

My daughter is only six and she often asks me if I am sad that she's getting bigger. I always say, "No. I'm glad that you're getting bigger." I guess she notices the sort of sad look on my face as I see her transform into her own person. Such as life... I can't even imagine the day I see her off to prom :/

Nice blog post. Wishing your daughter a great prom and a congratulations to you and your hubby for raising such a wonderful daughter that you are proud of.

God Bless~ Monique :)
