But that wasn't the only right of passage I've experienced in the past few months. In December, my baby girl finished up her student teaching and began substitute teaching. I am no longer supporting her (that deserves a round of applause). And then in January, she got engaged. Which means two of my children will be married.
All this got me thinking. Life is never static. We are always changing. Our situations are changing. Our bodies are changing. So why do we stop and scratch our heads at the new labels we've earned?
Mother of the bride.
