My oldest baby… well, she is no longer a baby.
As if I needed any more reminders of this fact, today I’m getting another one. Today, she’s heading over to her new school (for next year) with a bunch of her friends, to explore MIDDLE SCHOOL.
Middle school? How is this possible? How did my chatty and chubby cheeked baby girl turn into this chatty and oh so grown up big girl? I’m not sure I’m ready for this transition!
That being said, she is totally ready for it. And so, we move ahead, into a new season in life. Because ready or not, it’s coming.
In the meantime, I’m going to cherish every day of this summer. I’m not sure how many summers we have left when my kids still think it’s fun to be with me. And I’m going to soak it all up until that day comes.
There’s a good chance that I will spend all that time soaking it up while wearing this dress. It’s my new favorite, and judging by the multitude of compliments I got on it while wearing it the other day, I’m not alone in my love for it. It’s so fun, when people say, “where did you get that cute dress?” to be able to answer, “at the Wild Ruffle shop!”
dress, bracelets, and turquoise necklace – the Wild Ruffle shop; bag and longer necklace – J Crew; shoes – sold out but here’s one that is nearly exactly the same, and here’s a little less expensive option, and here’s one on sale!
