Stop the Clock

The closer it gets to the first day of kindergarten for my daughter, the more I think about how time has gone by so fast. The first 5 years of her life are over and she is about to start a new chapter of her life. I really thought I had a handle on my emotions but that doesn't seem to be the case. As the day grows nearer, the more and more I find my emotions are getting the best of me. I also find myself just staring at her and watching everything. It is so hard to believe how much she has grown and how time will go even faster now. I want to capture each moment in my mind forever.

During my unintentional blog break this week (not feeling great, kind of run down) I was looking through some pictures and came across this picture of my daughter. This was the day of her 5th birthday party. She was helping me decorate her birthday cake...more correctly....birthday Cupcake! She has a love of cupcakes just like me!

My lesson here is ....If I can't make the clock stop I have to be sure I capture everything with photos. I need to attach my camera to myself so I never leave home without it!

Have a great Thursday!


  1. Don't get me started!! Abby is going into K as well. She just looks more and more grown up these days.

  2. Great post.

    She looks EXACTLY like you.

    PS - Sounds like it's time for #2 my friend.
