my daughter is 6 years old 7 in june but feeling very 7 going on 17 lol she is a smart girl but very independent. I remember when i was 18 and she was a baby in arms , excited on how the world worked and playing , we enjoyed going on trips and i doted after her and cautious of her every step feeling very needed but tonight im not feeling very needed. she picks out her own clothes with my approval , cleans her room , packs her holiday care bag while i make her lunches , goes on the computer to play games with minimal help and says the word "like" as many times in one sentence as humanly possible. we go to the park and i get ditched lol and on the walk home after work & school we talk about what we did and if anything is troubling her and she is in awe over highschool and after school jobs that wont even affect her for years to come. shes getting ready to go to her biological fathers for a week. Im still adjusting to this and when i ring her i know she misses me alot. i am greatful for having a happy , healthy smart child but im getting alot of spare time here , how did you react when you noticed your child growing up fast.
