Just as every parent in the history of ever says, your kids will grow up fast. But what they don't tell you is it's a weird kind of fast. It honestly feels like Gracen should be 15 by now, but at the same time I have no idea how she's almost 5. I couldn't wait to get past the sleepless nights and diapers, and rocking to sleep, and now I miss it. My sweet baby is growing up and I'm not sure how ready I am for it.
Almost 2 months ago (yeesh I'm still pretty far behind) she had her first day of pre-k. And due to circumstances beyond my control (I still don't want to talk about it) I had to miss dropping her off for her first day. Luckily since it's our second year at St. Ann's I know a lot of the parents and kids already so that made up for a little bit of it.
