WARNING: I'm an emotional Mother.

It started at Costco.

I was so excited to be there by myself, and then I kept seeing things that would remind me of my girls and would have pangs of missing them deeply. Crazy since I had been with them ALL day....

Then I got home and was sorting through pictures...and just started crying.

This seems like yesterday....







And tomorrow morning, I am taking her to buy clothes for Kindergarten.

As a mostly stay at home mom, I spend many days staring at the clock...dreaming about bedtime...hoping time will go by quickly. And it did. Now I am looking at pictures wondering where time went.

I warned you I was emotional...but I want this written down so my beautiful, stubborn, strong-willed, creative, funny, one of a kind daughter will know one day how desperately I love her. How I want the best for her. How I pray for her and dream for her. How I know that she will grow into an incredible person...and how blessed I am that God chose me to be her Mom.

Maybe it's time for baby #3 (he he he). It's crazy how much we love our babies and there is just no way to explain the feeling until you have our own.

Warning: I am an emotional friend. (Newsflash, I know.) Thanks for making me cry right after I put my make-up on! What a great post for you and Haley both to remember.

With a Mom like you, how could she NOT be an incredible person?!

I love reading your blog, Kristi. I'm one of your faithful stalkers. You've inspired me and encouraged me through what you write. This post touched my heart and made me want to be a better mom today. Thank you! Carey

One of my favorite sayings, so much that it's become a cliche for me, is that we never begin to have an inkling of how much God loves us until we have children of our own. And in my case, I'm relearning it through my love for my grandchildren.

It's been fun to see them grow up the past few years. I like that they've recently decided that I exist. They're really fun!
