The First to Fly. . .

It's an interesting thing to know something is coming but yet be completely unprepared for the actual event.  Especially when the event happens in a way that isn't ideal.  I think all parents must feel the pain of the first part, at the very least.  I hope not many experience the second.

It's not as if I didn't notice my daughter getting older and stepping decidedly into adulthood.  Heck, I was there encouraging, cheering on, and even pushing at times.  I felt the internal parenting clock ticking almost as much as the biological one does at times. . .urging us forward before it's too late.

Where on Earth is the Time Going? Happy Birthday, Precious Daughter!

I have been tracking with the rapid age progression of my oldest. . .I saw 18 coming and battened down the hatches in preparation for the onslaught of emotions I knew would wash over me as my first stepped from childhood to adulthood.  It was hard, but I think I handled it well, all things considered.

So you'd think that I would recognize that I have three more children behind the first and have been equally prepared for their logical march of age.  But I somehow missed that point.
