Halfway there?

Last night at dinner, we were discussing Daughter D's upcoming birthday. She stopped us in our tracks by remarking, "I'll be 9 - that's halfway to 18!"

That is simply not possible.

18 is college, driving, dating, voting, moving away from home.

So, really? We're halfway there?

There is a small part of me that simply can't fathom a world that isn't centered on my children. Good thing we have 3 cats.

it's coming up fast, isn't it? and aren't we celebrating our 10th anniversary of virtual friendship as we speak??

it's okay. we'll get through it together. just like pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, breastfeeding, and homework.
