Reminiscing

I remember
The first moment I felt you growing in my stomach
When I first laid eyes on your beautiful face
I still remember the first time you smiled
You learning how to hold your bottle
As well as crawling and then walking

I remember
The silly games we would play
The singing and dancing
And making crazy faces
Playing dress up and tea time
But hide and go seek was your favorite

I remember
Your first day of Kindergarten
And you forgetting to get off the school bus
The first picture you drew me of those spiders
All of your artwork I still have to enjoy your growth
The field trips to the pumpkin farm

I remember
Preparing you for your eight grade dance
And your transition to high school
Homecomings and track meets
Your first boyfriend and breakup
Now your first love and senior prom shopping

Now
You have graduated high school
And heading off to college
You have just turned eighteen
And learning how to drive
Making me proud to be your mother

I wish
Nothing but the best for you
Although life is far from easy
You are a smart and strong young beautiful woman
And have the world right in front of you to enjoy to the fullest
Just know I will always be here for you, no matter what
