9 year old epiphany

While driving Bean to school today she tells me -

"Mom I'm so glad I have to do so many shots because it's made me a stronger person. I used to be a big baby and cry about everything."

I have mixed feelings on this. She's right and I'm proud of her for embracing this part of herself. For seeing the positive in it. But deep, deep down a part of me weeps that she has to.


  1. Those are bittersweet moments aren't they? They make you so proud and so sad at the same time...

  2. Our kids are so grown...I'm a big baby more than I'd like to admit.
