She's on her own

Today is daughter's class field trip to the zoo. Husband and I thought we would make a day out of it and meet the class there and have some fun.

Einey had other plans. She told us all weekend how she doesn't want us to meet them there. And this morning, before heading into school she asks "are you going to the zoo?". "no you didn't want me to, remember?" "Good". Most of me is glad she wants this independence, glad I don't have to make the millionth trip to zoo, and glad she is going to have fun. The other little part of me is sad that she doesn't want me to go. Doesn't want to share this with us.

But I know she's going to have a blast. Plus, we brought her a disposable camera so that she can take her own pictures, her own memories of this fun time.

She is growing up to fast!

It's always a little bittersweet when they tell you they don't want you to come along.

I was reading one of your older posts about letterboxing. That looks like fun. There's a few that are close to my house so I think I'm going to check it out this weekend, if the weather cooperates.

They DO grow up fast, huh?

I was just about to write about my son's recent field trip too (without me!).
