Today has been a busy one. I have been running the roads since 9 AM this morning, and I am ready to relax with the magazines I never have the chance to read. First stop was to open a checking account with a bank that has a branch in the town I am moving to this summer. Then Thing Two had an eye appointment. Turns out he needs reading glasses due to a focusing issue. I did chuckle at the way it was worded. Pizza and light shopping ended with me picking up my engagement ring (had to throw that in), but that is nothing compared to what I found when I made it home.
I opened the door to find my eldest cleaning the kitchen. A beautiful sight for my tired eyes, but she was beaming from ear to ear. She had made the perfect egg (sunny side up) and homemade pancakes. The recipe came from a website. As she happily went out of the room, I nibbled a leftover pancake, and wow, she impressed me. They were delicious and better than most adults'. I have to admit I miss the little tow head that stood in front of the pantry and asked for "hot yummies", but I am blown away by the independent young lady she has become. My baby is an extraordinary young lady, and I am humbled that she is mine.
