When your little people grow up!
Tears too as I remember the little girl learning about the world. Learning that friends could suddenly become enemies - primary school could be so confusing for a five year old who loved everyone! Her sadness at losing her beloved Grandma just before she started school, when she so wanted to show her how smart she looked in her new school uniform. A funny, caring, loving wee girl who is just the same - only in adult form! A friend said to me recently that she too looks at the photos of her girls and wonders where they've gone, I know exactly what she means. I still want to (and I admit, I sometimes do) bite Emily's nose when I see her, my little girl who back then, giggled like mad when I'd give her kisses and pretend to bite her nose off now mildly tolerates my madness!
