These pictures where taken during the farewell party in school last March 17. RJ said she is excited on summer vacation but sad at the same time because she doesn’t know if her classmates are the same set of friends she will have. Our girl is not just moving up to the 3rd grade, looks like she’s getting a bit mature too because vacation is not the only thing she cares about now.
It amazes me that RJ knows a lot of things now. She is the one teaching me the computer games and when I asked her how did she learn that, she said “I read the instructions.” Sometimes when I am wrong she is prompting me with “You are wrong, Mama.” There are also times she says “Let me, Mama. I can do this.” She is also the one choosing what she wants to wear. I am afraid my daughter needs me less everyday. Sad but that is the reality.
Time will come we can not take her to the park and play bubbles with her. I am proud and glad that she is maturing gracefully but sad at the same time because she is moving up and growing up so fast.
So as for now, we will enjoy every minute of her childhood. We will take her to the park and play with her, I will let her teach me the computer games, I will snuggle with her while watching her favorite movies and I will tuck her to bed and tell her story about how she was born. I will kiss her more often and will hold her tighter.
