I've been struck this year by my children's increasing independence. By the fact that their care and upkeep does not occupy my every waking moment as it once did. The little one wants to cross streets by herself; the big one can and does cross streets by herself. She still wants me to walk her to school though, and she does still hold my hand. I hadn't really thought about that until someone commented on it and I suddenly realized that someday soon she wouldn't.
