I'm still a little stunned at how quickly and beautifully shes aged...

I didnt hesitate to tell her that after she received her diploma...

We gave her some money to spend on her cruise to Bermuda next week...

I remember like it was only yesterday...

Seeing little Jamie running after her older sister Alyson across the sunny playground field...

Her only sister,my only other child,graduated a few years ago...

Many of the parents there were in their 50s and 60s watching their children graduate...

I'm still in my 40's...

Other than that i'm unable to describe how nice I feel right now...

Should I laugh or cry?

And yes I know what you mean, I had my kids young and they're all grown up and I'm still young as well. Oh well, in my mid 40s at least 13.gif I always thought the other parents looked really old. chuckle.gif I might be delusional though. No, I'm not taking any questions.

While hugging each other after her graduation...

The first words she said to me were...

"Hi"..."I love you"..."I did it"...

I came home every single night after work to play with my two daughters when they were little and I never once hit them and I never yelled at them either and now they're still not afraid to talk to me and they still tell me they love me and they say "oh my god your so easy to talk to" as my heart goes soaring across the sky (*-*)

I remember one night I came home during the cold winter after working 10 hours at a stainless steel assembly plant making sound proofing plates for nuclear submarines and I was dirty and exhausted and I walked up the stairs and through the door and there was my 5 year old daughter dressed in her little snow suit...

"Shes been waiting for you all day"

"Daddy will you build me a snow hill so I can go sledding?

And out the door we went and I built it and we sledded for hours...

How could I have said no?

Where else on earth would I rather have been?

What else would I rather have done?

I was never happier playing with my two daughters when they were young...

Watching them being happy...

When your a freshman in 9th grade a senior in 12th grade looks like your parents...

When your a senior a freshman looks like a 4th grader...

When you've lived and aged years beyond 18 you realize 18 wasnt very old at all...
