Actually, this is a picture of Baby Daughter at her undergrad graduation in San Francisco last year. This year, Baby Daughter is graduating from Boston University with her Masters in Criminal Justice. Proud doesn’t begin to cover it. She takes my breath away at how mature and accomplished she is. I can’t even remember where my head was at 25, but I’m fairly certain it wasn’t on my shoulders.
Hard to believe she is the little spud who wore roller skates all day long and didn’t take them off until she flopped out in bed. I still have dents in a few walls during her cheerleading days when I saw more of her feet than her face because she was always walking on her hands…such a little gymnast. We also lost a few lamps in that era.
My little firecracker has grown up to be my idol with her fearless nature and hell yes attitude. And even though she’s all grown up, she’s not beyond serious snuggle time on the couch while watching trashy love movies, eating choccie chip cookies and drinking beer. We always hope that our kids surpass us in ability and reflect all the things we tried to teach them. I look at our Muggie Bug and see a fabulous reflection of all our silliness and love.
So, we’ll be out of town for a week soaking up the sights of Bahston and watching Baby Daughter meet her fabulosity.
