this pic is from a few weeks ago, I know better than to try and get her to pose for a new one
Today was the first day of school, and after I sent Sym to start grade seven I thought it’d be a good idea to look at her baby pictures and get SUPER EMOTIONAL. It’s just so weird to think that I had a tiny baby, and now she’s practically a teenager (SHE CERTAINLY HAS ENOUGH ATTITUDE). An old friend of her dad’s was in town this week, who hadn’t seen her in years and he was SHOCKED at how much a person she is now. Seriously, what happened to this little squish?
Sym spends a lot of time alone in her room, and sometimes I worry that I’m not spending enough time with/paying enough attention to her. Today I asked her how the first ten months of being a big sister has been, and she said “It’s fine, I get way more ME time now!” ie more time with her annoying mother not pestering her. I guess I don’t have to worry after all.
