My little girl will be gone for a week at camp. I'll drop her off this weekend.
I know that she is growing up and becoming her own person. There are times I'll catch a glimpse of her and marvel...wow. Who is that cute young lady? Look at those legs that go on forever!
My job as a parent is to make myself obsolete. And I send her off to camp to help her have a taste of independence, before she needs to be out on her own. But I still think of her as the little 5 pounder who never slept and ate constantly...some things never change.
