"a portrait of each of my children, once each week, in 2016"
Cruz: We hit the end of an era this week. Your last day of daycare, and first day of KINDERGARTEN. In typical Cruz fashion, you are extremely relaxed about the whole thing, excited to meet new friends and explore a new classroom. I, on the other hand, have already been emotional about this one. Saying goodbye to Mrs. W, friends you have known since you were in diapers, and sending you into this new chapter of continued independence and opportunity makes my heart break and soar at the same time.
Mila: With all these boys in our neighborhood, one would think you would get lost in the shuffle. But not Mila. You seem to be the leader of the pack out there, strutting around in your plastic Cinderella shoes, pushing your baby carriage from one driveway to the next, calling the shots and seemingly getting all the boys wrapped around your finger.
