We spent the day making her ready for prom, thanks to a couple of great friends who did the hair and nail bits I’m no good at.
I hope her evening has gone as she hoped and deserved. It was a joy to try to make it special for her. She looked like a fairytale.
She is almost grown up.
Life is about to change. New school, a job, a qualification, autonomy in her life.
I only understood recently what a joy it becomes to watch that happen. How easy it is to see chicks fledge. I thought I would be sad.
It has to be said though, I watched her all day today and I saw this little girl all through it.
You are beautiful Fran. Today and every day. From the inside out.
