This is my third, my youngest, my sweet pea, my baby. She was almost one on this Easter morning, and did she rock the Easter hat or what?
Tomorrow she graduates from high school. She is threatening to leave me in the fall and go to the University of Texas, but I am still hoping she is just teasing me, and that she will stay with me forever, as I always thought she would. But if she does go off to that big orange tower in Austin, and becomes a crazy amazing nurse, I will be assured of receiving wonderful care in my dotage. So maybe she should go, after all. I will be bopping back and forth between Texas and Paris, so I probably won’t even miss her. Or her radiant smile. Or her bubbling personality. Nope. The Empty Nest will not be so bad. I am looking forward to devoting a lot more time to my day drinking and Twitter. And blogging, of course.
So off with you, my dear one. Keep Austin weird and make people laugh and learn how to be a nurse. And be sure to send me lots of selfies and texts telling me how much you miss me. And follow me on Twitter.
