Bright Lights, Big City

Right now, my baby girl is at school.  A new school.  A better school.  And I’m so happy for her.

But we all know bittersweet moments – we’ve all been there.  Rarely are there achievements and good times in StimCity without a little twang of ‘ugh’ to go along with them.  It’s the nature of the beast.

RM’s new school is in the city about 15 miles away.  I know that doesn’t sound like much, but it is a huge departure from the 1 mile away from home her preschool was.  So as exciting as this morning was, and as thrilled as I was to know I am sending her on to bigger and better things – my heart ached as she pulled away in the new van, with new driver and monitor – off to the big city.

But there will be bright lights in that big city.  MY Bright Light, for one.  Her boyfriend, Rock Star, is another Bright Light.  And I even know of a couple of the other Bright Lights that go to school there, too.  Then there are the teachers and staff at the school – MORE Bright Lights.  It is a true community in this school.  Like ‘CHEERS’ — where everybody knows your name and it feels like home. 

So yes, she’s off to the Big City – but there couldn’t possibly be a nicer, more friendly small-town feeling when you walk through the doors there. 

That’s where my baby will shine her Bright Light.
