My eldest daughter was 8 yesterday.
How did that happen?
One minute she is like this:
And now she is like this:
I mean, seriously, where did the time go. How did she turn into this confident, bubbly, bright and beautiful person (I was going to say small person then righted myself, she is 4ft 4in - I am 5ft 2in she will be taller than me in no time).
She has her own social circle and has had the same group of friends since starting school, and remains friends with her friend from nursery.
She does well at school and is bursting with energy, so full of life. I am immensely proud of her and wish for her only good things.
When people say to you, don't wish the time away, they are SO right.
