This can't be Right?! I'm not old enough to have a MIDDLE SCHOOLER?!?!?!?

Aaah - yes - that is the thought that came to me this morning... at 6:15 a.m.!?

This can't be right?! I am not old enough to have a teenager... OK - I know - she is not a teenager yet... but she seems awfully close and I am simply not ready to admit that I have a child that is almost as tall as me... it can't be?!

Here's the thing - I have always felt older than my years... I have always hung out with older friends and been the 'mature' one even from childhood... so it's not that I am feeling 'old' old... it's just that I like to think of myself as - well - not old?!

...And here's another thing... I am not ashamed to admit it... I actually miss my kid!? She is awesome - super funny and so sweet and just a ton of fun to talk with and goof off around... she is reaching that age where it is sometimes hard for me to remember that we can't REALLY be friends just yet... she still needs parenting and a Mom... but I can tell that when she is a 'growed up' - we will be the best of friends! I just adore being with her... So - well - I haven't had the actual empty house yet... I dropped her off at school and then went right to a meeting... ran a few errands... and just ate lunch - at my computer - and all the while - our roommate has been in the kitchen baking... now - I am not complaining - oh believe me! - but I am just saying - I haven't had that quiet still house yet... I know I will love it... and maybe THEN I will do that Back To School Happy Dance... but it usually takes me a few days to adjust... then I enjoy some quiet time... and within a couple of weeks - I am once again booked solid and have little actual time at home... so much for a STAY at home Mom!?

So - I will update 'Part Two' when my 'little one' returns and I have something to say! LOL! (Shut up, Darcie! This wasn't THAT many words?!)

Scrap On!
