Wow, I had no idea it's been a week since I last posted anything. I wonder where I have been? You know, we like to think we are in control of every aspect of our lives until something like this Sometimes life just seems to get in the way no matter how much we like to think we are managing it. :-)

The other day Amira and I went on a movie date. We've been to the movies once or twice before but it was always with a group. This time, however, was just she and I. We went to see one of the newest movies that is out called Space Chimps. It was a cute movie and we laughed through a lot of it. Afterwards I told Amira I had fun and was glad we could do this together. She told me she had fun too and wished I had fun more often because all I do is work. Of course this broke my heart because there's nothing I'd like more than to spend all my waking moments with her.

In only a few short weeks she'll be leaving her little preschool and enter the big kids school aka kindergarten. Of course Amira is thrilled at the thought of going to big kid school and wearing her big kid school clothes (uniform) whereas I on the other hand am struggling to hold my feelings back because I'm sad that my baby girl is growing up. I know, I know for all you logical folks I understand this is normal and suppose to happen, but my emotional side is wanting time to stand still a little longer.

I'm currently still in a transitional time period with my two jobs. The phasing out of one and entering into another is both exciting and challenging at the same time. Again unchartered territory by an individual that doesn't take change too well, so feel pretty good about the progress. :-)

I hope your mom's recovery is continuing well !

I remember my mother working all hours of the day to support us and wishing she didn't have to also , but hey , I turned out ok , because of my mother , her love and her support in life and that's what counts at the end of the day right ? Amira will love you no matter what so , you do what you gotta do and just kiss and hug her all that you can .

I remember when we took all our kids to their 1st day in Big Kids school too . Moe and I Just managed to hide our tears ( along with most of the other parents there that day ) until the child went into the classroom .One of the HARDEST things we ever did ! Good Luck !
