my daughter is graduating this friday and im am sad to see her all grown up..= / she acts so mature than her peers and i wounder y. i didnt make her grow up she is just like that-like her dad! it seems like its been more than 6 yr that i pushed her out and now im attending her graduation. it has been a long road for her but she made it. next yr she will be going to 1st grade and she will outsmart me! pretty soon she will be embarrased to see me hug her or something like that....i ask myself 'will i be strong enough to let her go out into this big bad world.' i thinki ill be like the mom who secretly tracks her daughter thru the cell phone she gave her for her bday or whatever occation. the one who sneaks money into her prepaid debit or mastercard. this is to all the mother who had to play the role of both parents, to every 'mother' out there. i hope i will be just as strong as u when the time comes for me to let my little sweet p go. soar to the sky.... i better stop before i start crying lol!!!

My baby angel graduated also,this past Monday. I am also so happy to see her grow , but sad that it has gone by so quickly. She sang a song at graduation about moving on to firtst grade. It is a mix of emotions and, like you I also want to be there for her as she becomes a lady. She will grow up a beautiful and loving person because of you. It is hard, but as a mom we will alwyas be there for them and our baby girls will know that. I have a 15 year old who has gone to become a very mature young lady, but when she is upset or happy she still comes to see me. They will grow and fly and we will be there for when they fall. Take heart in knowing that you being there for her she will never be away from you. :)

Aww...this brought tears to my eyes! I think you will be strong enough when the time comes. Im sure of it. My "little" one will be graduating High School in a couple weeks and I know the bitter sweet feeling. Still, I know I raised her right and she will be just fine. She is a smart girl and I have no doubt that whatever she chooses to do in her future, it will be something that she will do good at and that I will be proud of. One thing is that once they reach this age, you get to reap the rewards of all the time and effort that you put into being a good parent. I have 3 older ones and they are now my closest friend. You do let them go so to speak but they never go far from your heart. Enjoy these years with your daughter. They really do fly right by. Next thing you know, you'll be attending highschool graduation!

This is one of the saddest things in a parents lives. Letting go of your child that took care of for years could literally kill you.

it is sad but happy at the same time too! ive spent 24 hours in labor to bring her into this world and now she is my big girl who can speak her mind and tell me things. i want her to grow up and become someone she can look back and reflect on what she is. i have givin her a keepsake that has a pic of her when she was just born and me together and on the other side it has one of her in her little graduation suit and me beside her and i told her whenever u look at this always know that i am here for her-as is her father! when she heard me say that her face lit up like a light. i can let her go but keep her close at the same time. after all i do have one more child at home!!
