I love the big girl she is becoming. We have good talks and had a chance to discuss all the changes that happen when the school year ends and friends start to go different ways. Big stuff for a 5 year old, but she took it all in stride.
Now I am the one feeling sad she isn't there to ride into work with me every morning. It has been lonely like when I came back to work after maternity leave. I have been so used to having her with me. Parenting is all about adapting to change.
