A Letter to My Elizabeth:
What happened to the last five years?
I do remember holding you for the first time for forever not wanting to let you go.
I remember early morning feedings and lullabies.
I remember you rolling on the floor as fast as you could before you could crawl.
I remember teaching you how to walk while holding my hand.
I remember dressing you up and doing your hair like you were my little dolly.
I remember your first words were "daddy" and "mom."
I remember so many things but time just passes by so quickly.
Today you start Kindergarten. We have not been apart this long. I do not know what I am going to do with myself. Katie will be sad because there will be no one to play dress up, Polly Pockets, and Barbies with during the day. I am going to have to fill in for you during the day. I make a promise not to take away any toys Katie is playing with so that I can be a good example. I know you still need to work on that. I will miss your songs that you make up while waiting for me to make you lunch. I will miss your stories and make believe fantasies that you invent in your beautiful little mind. I will only see you for a few hours in the morning and in the afternoon during the week and this makes me sad. I know you are embarking on a new adventure. I look forward to doing homework with you and hearing about your day. Don't worry! I signed up to be your Art Masterpiece teacher and a room parent so I will still be able to see you at school. You will probably wave good-bye to me with a huge smile on your face tomorrow. I promise to do the same. I will only cry when you can't see me. I love you so much my wonderful daughter. I hope you have a fun first day of school. I will see you as soon as you are dismissed and greet you with a huge hug and kiss.
