Congratulations Monster Baby!

Well, today my little Monster Baby is graduating from Playschool. I know, I know, I've already started crying and it's only 6:30 in the morning. She's so grown up now. It's funny what you don't think about when you hold your little bundle of joy in your arms for the first time. I never thought about this. Graduation from Oxford, yes, graduation from playschool, no. (Yes, I have high hopes and big dreams.)

I'm taking a page from Talli's blog when she got her contract and lit up the blogosphere with her lovely face.

Here's my Monster Baby. (And yes, I do really call her that. She thinks it's funny and calls me Monster Mommy. Then growls.)









To my one and only Monster Baby, may all your hopes, wishes and dreams come true.
I love you more than peanut butter,

Mommy

That's wonderful! Congrats and thanks for sharing.

My own daughter (eldest) is entering High School in the full, which of course I'm ambivalent about.

My daughter just went to her first prom. PROM! With 3 1/2 inch heels and cleavage. *sigh*

It goes by fast.

Elliot Grace said...

Monster Baby is adorable:) and where I come from, peanut butter more often than not, is spoken before such tiresome words as "mom," or "dad," or "allowance."

have a great weekend, Anne:)

Lady Glamis said...
