High School

Natalie is going to see High School Musical 3 again today. She is totally into Corbin Bleu since she got to meet him this last summer at the fair. I took Natalie and her friend last week to see it, and the theater was fill with screaming girls. Today, she's is going with a friend, and hopefully the theater will not be in the same shape as it was for me!

My baby girl turns 9 tomorrow. Where does the time go? I can't believe I have a 9 year old. For some reason, this birthday to me is bittersweet. Is it because she 1 year closer to double digits? Is it because she is growing at such a fast rate, that I can't keep up? Or, do I long to have my cuddle bunny back, as she is constantly pulling away, I just want to hold on.......I'll make it through, I'm sure I will.

My daughter how you're growing
and changing every day;
Some day you'll be too busy
to dance, and sing, and play.
It seems like only yesterday
I rocked you in my arms;
and though a tiny baby
I was captured by your charms.
Then in the blinking of an eye
a toddler walked to me,
Those days too are gone now
but oh, how can that be.
Now when I look at you
a little girl I see,
with grown up dreams and wishes
playing make-believe.
Too soon you will be all grown up,
but my pride will never end.
For I'll always be your Mother and I hope your dearest friend
