who took over my bathroom?

Maggie ( she was heading out to meet her date)

Hadley and her boyfriend... and yes he passes the test, I really like him!

It's that time of year again. The time of year when it looks like someone had a Mary Kay party in my bathroom.
Yes, it's prom season.
Hadley and Maggie love to get dressed up. And I love to sit back and watch them cluck and fluff their feathers. Maybe because Hadley is off to college soon it is with bittersweet teary eyes I watch them hobble away in their new high heels off to make lifelong memories. They definitely don't look at these times together with nostalgia...yet. I hope their paths in life keep them close in heart and spirit. They are my heart and spirit! I look at them with such awe, they are such kind hearted people. The years have flown by and truly I gasp at how quickly. Weren't they just sitting side by side in a buggy with Hadley clasping Maggie's hand like a favorite blankie?
These girls, shrill with laughter or emotions, each and everyday. Their Dad and I want so much for them, but mostly we want them to be happy. I am filled with pride for these two, they truly make the world a better place.

Oh, my goodness that's about 6 years away for me. I bet it goes in a blink of an eye.

What a sweet post! You sound so proud, and it sounds like you and your hubby did such a great job raising them. :o)

Beautifully written. They're blessed to have a mom who can sit back and enjoy these times with them, as well as truly appreciate who they are becoming!
