I know this post has nothing to do with slipcovers, but I'm such a proud mama that I'm about to burst wide open.
Meet PFC Knowles! Yeah, my baby girl is gonna be a solider. This time Monday night she will be at Ft. Jackson, Columbia, SC starting boot camp. She's moving on out from under the protective wings of mom and dad. And I know she will do well. She's worked so hard over the last 7 months studying, taking tests and getting physically fit. She passed all the required test and the physical training test to earn a promotion to Private First Class before starting boot camp. Can you say "proud mama".
She has grown into one amazing young woman. Focused, professional and with a big heart. Yesterday I was at the salon she worked at being pampered with a ultimate manicure and pedicure while she trained her replacement. This was a rare chance to see her as a professional instead of my baby girl. I'm so glad I got to see that. Makes me see her in a whole new light.
While at the salon several of her clients came up to me and told me how much they enjoyed knowing her and that we did a great job raising her. Not to brag, but I agree, we raised a winner. Not that it wasn't rough at times, but it was worth it. But we can't take all the credit. She become her very own person and one that I am so proud to know.
The picture above is just one that we took recently and it is my favorite. This one is my second favorite. I love this picture of us.
