Homecoming Times Two

Kaylee is home and it feels so so SO good to this mom.
I feel like there is extra sunshine in my heart, extra bounce in my step, warm and glowy... hard to explain without sounding really corny, but I don't mind corny too much.

Tonight is homecoming! This is the very first dance that I've been able to help Kaylee get ready for... the very first dance that I could be the one taking the picture and seeing how beautiful she looked firsthand.

I got to see photos, sure. But it's just not the same.  I often had to wait until the summer to see them. I saw her junior prom pictures on Facebook, but I didn't get to see how excited she was to go or help make decisions about what eyeshadow to use, or tell her gorgeous she looked before she left for the night, or tell her to come straight home afterward and to "be good!!"

Tonight I got to do all that and I can't say how happy I am that she decided to stay here for her Senior year.It's nice to get some time with her before she's ALL grown up!
Well, here's the before the date picture... They make a pretty cute couple, eh?

Hands down this has been THE VERY BEST homecoming ever!!

She has grown into such a beautiful young woman. You are one lucky mom. I'm glad she is with you this year. I know how much it means to you. Enjoy all the drama of her youth. Have a great time.
