This being my daughter’s senior year, I’ve tried to make the most of moments we have together. She and I are on our own a lot this year since my sons are away at college/grad school and my husband is working 3 hours away, coming home on weekends every two to three weeks. So, my daughter and I have found our own routine and rhythm for our responsibilities and downtime.
Yesterday, she had a snow day, only the 2nd or 3rd in this light winter we’ve had. I had to teach but came home by 10:30, then she and I just hunkered down in the warmth of home, watched HGTV, packed some boxes for our move, and ended the day with pie from our local diner(since it was 3/14, Pi day). It was so good to simply enjoy being together.
Today, I came in to her school to get a pedicure from her(she’s finishing her cosmetology license). I’m sitting here, listening to her friends talk, letting her take care of my feet what a peaceful time between us, even if she doesn’t really like dealing with feet🙄. My heart is full with joy from having quality time with my baby girl.
