Girl Growing Up – New Era

Well I thought the day would never come. That’s a lie. I knew the day would come but it came a little sooner than I was ready. Today I volunteered to help with my daughters field trip. My cute 9 year old that still knows how cool I really am. The one who insists that I put a note in her lunch every day. That cute 9 year old.

My daughter runs to me and gives me a big hug as she hops off the bus at the park where the 3rd grade is about to eat lunch. I brought my own lunch expecting to be part show and tell.

“So do you want me to sit by you?” I ask my daughter.

“Nah I am going to sit by my friends.” Says my cute daughter not looking back as she skips away.

No longer as cool as I thought I was. She would still glance over to make sure I was still there. Came over a few times to talk (and steal my chips). New Era – no longer the coolest person she knows.

Got to still be top 5 though.
