Endings, often emotional, never repeatable. Some we are thrilled to see happen, others we wish would never come. This week I have 2 endings in process, one fitting in each category.
Wednesday I scheduled what I hope to be the last surgery I have for a very long time. After the multiple ultrasounds it is time to have those pesky uterine polyps out. This is expected to be a quick and relatively pain-free procedure. I am also able to have it done at the surgery center which I am pleased about, having more than my fill of hospitals last year. This is an ending I have been looking forward to for months! It does not occur until mid-July but at least it is on the schedule.
An ending that I am not so happy to see will happen in just a few hours. It is the “very special endings” ceremony at Madison’s school. They do not have a graduation ceremony for Kindergarten. Instead they have this little gathering where they will sing, recite a poem and receive a certificate. My baby is heading to first grade soon. Amazing how quickly time flies!
They have been practicing for weeks. She comes home and hides in her room so I can not see what she is doing. Two days ago we had to spend time picking the “perfect” outfit. A pretty floral dress and her new “high heel” sandals. For such a rough and tumble little girl, it always amazes me how much of a little diva she can become when she wants to dress up. I guess the balance is good…god help me lol!
I am very proud of her growth this year. She went to school reading just a few sight words and she ends reading small chapter books. Her math skills are off the charts and the thoughtful questions that she poses to me on a very regular basis at times throw me for a loop.
