You've perfectly touched on "that mother's curse"...don't we all want to keep our babies small? Beautifully done.
Beautifully written! You really expressed the emotion wrapped up in these stepping stones of life, for the Mom and daughter. The last line especially touched my heart since I just sent my baby off to junior high! Keep writing:)

This was a charming story.I think it captures the child's view very well. I can't imagine how I'll feel when this day comes around for my little girl. Well done!
Oh this almost brought tears to my eyes. My baby is starting her last year of high school. I could so relate to the mother's feelings. We work so hard to raise them to be independent, loving, and happy adults and our thanks for all of that hard work is they leave is to become independent, hard-working adults! :) Nicely told with a good message.

And this is why I homeschool!! No, not really, but I definitely felt for the mother in your story. How well I can empathize with her pangs of sorrow as she watches her littlest one grow. This was well-written and I enjoyed it very much!
