...because I did those dumb this you gotta do.
...because I watched the exuberance with which my 3 year old gleefully trotted off to her first day of school.
...because I was knocked down with the love of my daughter when she saw me to pick her up from school.
...because she really had a great time in pre-school.
...because my 11 year old is living to her full potential and excelling despite trying to convince me otherwise.
