Last night at graduation, when the music started and I was standing with my family watching as my niece's senior class came onto the football field, I had chillbumbs!! I thought to myself, now if that was Alyssa's senior class, I would be crying! However, upon giving my sister a quick check to see if she was having a 'moment', I got a quick glance and a "Are you kidding?" look! heehee Then I responded, that this time next year, we would all be here again for my nephew, Craig. At that, my sister gave a quick "Praise the Lord!" heehee All of you that know us, knows that my sister, Kim, loves her kids more than the moon and stars, but she's ready to be done! LOL She's done an excellent job with both, Lauren & Craig!!
That got me thinking, Alyssa is only going to be in the 6th grade next year, and one minute I'm ready for her to be done, then the next minute, I'm not! Last night, at graduation, made me think...of course, I will be so very proud of Alyssa's accomplishments, but then again, will I be able to handle her taking off to college?!?! Who knows?!?! What I do know is that I've got several more years to ponder on it, but it also got me thinking about doing a small scrapbook of some type all about ME! Not her....but ME! Something I could work on, now and then, and give to her upon graduation to take with her. I was thinking it could have little notes to her about different things; my favorite types of movies; what I hope for her future, etc.
OK! I know I am having a 'mommy' moment here, but please work with me!! Seriously, let me know what you think, or if you have any ideas for me.
(Oh, by the way, if anyone is interested, I have absolutely nothing else to do right now....that's why I've come up with another album to start!!) HA/HA
