Sunday morning.

5 Sep

It is all nice and quiet in the Carranza house this sunday morning and that is because for the first time in a year and a half we didn’t have to do the sunday morning rush to get my oldest daughter to work on time. She drove herself there ALL BY HER BIG GIRL SELF! As I started this blog post I looked outside my office window and watched her car pull away. I can not believe she has her license now and is driving everywhere. Alone. Without me or Jason pressing our foot on to the imaginary break or grabbing on to the imaginary “holy shit bar.” Which keeps me in the constant thoughts of wondering why can’t I put my foot on to the imaginary break of life? and I sure hope I have an imaginary “holy shit bar” to hold on to when this kid goes off to college. I am so not ready for this phase…

But its inevitable. They all grow up and they grow up way too fast. In the meantime I will soak up every little precious heart panging moment I can. Like this morning…watching her pull away from the house for the first time without me.

All I can think to say is “Dude, life is NUTS!”
