Lilly is Turning 5!

This Saturday is Lilly’s birthday and she will be five years old. Sometimes time moves so slowly and then I think back to when Lilly was born and it does not seem like five years have gone by. Everyone reminds me that she is going off to kindergarten this Fall. I really don’t need to be reminded 🙂 This is one of the hardest parts of being a parent. Each year that goes by we lose a  little of our kids. But, then again, maybe this is the way it should be. It would be too hard to just let go all at once one day. As parents we let go in baby steps. Every milestone from first steps to leaving home is a way for us to slowly, very slowly, let go and let them find their own way. This process is hard on us but much needed. I am learning that as my children grow older it gets harder. As infants we can fix just about anything. Unfortunately, as they are away from home more there are more things you can not fix. And there are many more things to come and I will do my best to help them.
