She's growin' up

Our oldest is settling nicely into her new abode. Much more nicely than I had ever imagined. It seems as though she needed a little boost of responsibility, like having her own room, and she just blossomed. I know it is all new and who knows how long the newness will last, but it is pretty neat. last night, she informed us she would be doing her laundry every two days and had already started a load and cleaned up around the laundry area. She then proceeded to fix herself a cup of calming tea, reviewed material for a test, folded and put her laundry away and came up to tell us goodnight. When I went down this morning, she was already up and dressed and making her bed. A new room and new responsibilities have given her a new lease on life. I feel bad we couldn't accomplish this sooner. Oh well. She's growing up...and it breaks my heart.

  1. She is just blossoming into who she is going to be. Sad but wonderful at the same time. Sniff!

  2. I know. I can't even talk about it without turning into a pool of goo.
