She had her summer braid cut off tonight, and her two front teeth are missing. Her nails cleaned off the nail art I designed for her and trimmed to perfection too.
As I labeled and wrapped her books tonight, I realised she will be off to boarding school and university in another two blinks.
In no time at all, Bean will be joining Girl in the same school and saving us the hassle of multiple school runs in different parts of the city.
It has been a bittersweet 21 days in Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. Both Girl and Bean grew so much in that time. I grew too, perhaps.
Remember this, my lovelies:
1. Give your best attempt at life; and
2. Enjoy growing as a person.
I love you both very much.
