I knew this day would come. The day when my baby truly became a “big girl.”
Yesterday, Cait rode a bike for the first time without her training wheels. It broke my heart that I wasn’t there. As a working mom, I know this is a reality. There are things that will happen in my kids lives that I am simply going to miss. Thank God for modern technology, though. My husband caught the whole thing on his iPhone and messaged it to me as soon as it happened. Not the same as actually being there, but it was the next best thing…unsure if my colleague agreed as she listened to me yell “Hooray, Cait!” at my phone and blubber like an idiot afterwards.
Last night I told Cait she had crossed the true finish line from toddlerhood to big-girl-dom. She was so proud. As was I.
