Ali and Lumpkin. On a different day, a previous outing. To be young (and thin) again! Ali is Lumpkin's Besty and is now dating her boyfriend's best friend. I knew that these days were coming. I've known it all along. But it still didn't totally prepare me for the sitting up with the lights on, waiting and watching the clock, trying not to call and text too much.
Where do the years go? Wasn't it just yesterday that I was strapping her into her carseat, handing her a sippy cup, singing along to Tom Petty in our old Mercury Sable? Isn't she still in preschool? Tell me I didn't just buy a mini skirt and a pair of 4 inch heels. That must have been some other bad Mom.
