Her daddy finally decided she was ready for a cell phone. And it is purple too! She has now entered the "all my friends have one" zone. Another step in responsibility and just plain growing up in our eyes.
AND MOM DOESN'T LIKE IT ONE BIT!!!
Don't get me wrong. I am not upset that she has a new phone. I am not upset that she is in the band at school playing at football games. I am not upset that she is already talking about driving. I am not upset that she is starting to babysit and earn her own money. In fact I am proud of her and all she has accomplished already in her young life.
No, what upsets me is that my little girl is turning into a young lady. What upsets me is that in another 4 and a half years my baby girl will be graduating. What upsets me is that this...
is now just a precious memory to hold in my heart forever.
Being a mom is sometimes bittersweet.
