little girl bigger

Miss Girl is now officially registered and orientated for Primary come September. I'm sure I wasn't the only parent there who filled out the paperwork and smiled at all the teachers with a lump in their throat, either.

(not getting all maudlin and teary...not getting all teary AM NOT)

But it seems a very short time since she was a chunk of black curls and huge smiles.

Aw, so cute. Both of my sons started school with a wave of the hand and nary a backwards glance. I'm not saying I wanted them to be upset but a little show of regret at leaving mum's side would have been nice........

It seems we're both feeling that sadness... it's so much fun experiencing how they grow and watching them learn, but so sad that it happens so, so quickly.

HA! Was she ever a chunk! Look at those eyes. They haven't changed a bit, have they? Isn't that amazing!

It's such an exciting time, yet so...different. Altering. And it happens too fast!!

She's gorgeous. Such an old soul.

Why does it seem to go so fast? She's so sweet and her smile is beautiful.

FTR, I'm not getting all teary over our registration either. Not one lick (*wipes away leak from eye area*)

She's beautiful. I was fine signing them up. I swore that I wouldn't cry on their first day of school. I lied.

Don't worry, school is AWESOME. You're both going to LOVE it. (And I'm not usually a caps kinda girl.)
