Nobody can ever accuse me of not being sentimental. Today is Charnai's last required-by-the-people-that-your-kid-attend-school day of school. It's weird. I wrote about her last first day of school at the beginning of this year and here we are today. I distinctly remember taking this girl to her first day of kindergarten like 2 years ago, not 13.
She on the other hand is so done with High School. Up until a couple of months ago, we never had an issue with her getting up for school or not wanting to go. Charnai has always been a girl that wakes right up and is excited about school. When she was sick, I would have to make her stay home. Until a few weeks ago. She started counting her absences and figuring how many "sick" days she could use up.
This morning I will make her last before school breakfast and her lunch. I am so writing a note on her napkin today.
Tomorrow is graduation and she is ready. Me, not so much but what's a mom to do? I feel more ready than I did at the beginning of the year but it is what it is. We are so proud and excited for her but it's so bittersweet. Soon she will be at college and we won't see her everyday. That is the part I hate the most.
Congratulations to our sweet baby girl. You have truly been an amazing child to have in our lives and watch grow up. We love you!!
