CC Mama’s

Filed under: Stories — Tags: , , , , , — Missy @ 4:54 pm  

Well this CC Mama just sent her youngest off to pre-k today and it is best explained as a bittersweet experience…  It is a combination of pride watching your children grow up mixed in with a bit of empty nest syndrome.  I am sure I faired much better today than I will the day they go off to college :)  

Hope you all enjoy a few pictures of my babies.

Wesley’s first day of Pre-K

Rebecca’s first day of second grade.

If your a CC Mama be sure to share your stories and pics with us on our facebook page!

A Couture Cowgirl is YOU, Proclaim it Proudly!  And with Style, of course…
