Patricia's first sleepover and Patrick's first commute

My daughter's best friend in school had two sleep over at our place. This was last year. They had so much fun doing all sort of things, all night long.

Her best friend, since then, has been inviting Patricia to sleep over at their place. But I had manage to delay it for as long as I could, always thinking of an excuse.

I guess Patricia decided to take the matters into her own hands and told her best friend's mom that she can sleep over one Friday. [This was 2 Fridays ago]. And I was just surprised to receive a message from the mom. So I had to let her do it.

That same day, for the very first time, I decided to let Patrick commute all the way home. I would normally pick him up at the bus station. But since Patricia will be going home with her best friend, I thought it would be a perfect day to let Patrick try to commute all the way home. He had to wait for about 15 minutes for his connecting bus, and then he had to walk about 3 blocks to get home. I kept on calling him on his cell every 15 minutes. He made it home but he said he was very tired from the long walk.

Time flies... I can't believe how much they've grown.

I read your latest comment on my blog. You're right, we have to learn to let go because our kids are growing up. :)
