graduation day



To Finn on Preschool Graduation Day,

When you woke me up this morning, you were so excited to get ready for school. You put your shoes on before even getting your pants on because you knew it would take you an extra long time to tie them yourself.

When I look at you sometimes I feel like I am looking at myself. Your eyes and nose are my eyes and nose. Your smile is my smile. But what is inside you is something so different from me. You are bits of me, and bits of your father, and huge chunks of yourself all smashed together and waiting to unfurl into something we can only imagine.

You are, little one, so YOU that no one could ever be more you if they tried. I am so happy and honored to be your mother. I cannot wait to watch you grow into the man you will someday be.

Love,

Your Mama
