Here it is, a Monday morning, and I am without my girl. For the past 5+ years, this has been our day to reconnect after a weekend. A day all to ourselves. And now, she is probably arriving at school, where she will line up with her classmates, march into her classroom, and start her day with people I hardly know.
I love that she is growing + blooming. Moving into her own space, at the right time. But oh, it hurts not to have this time with her any longer!
