My Mini Me

In March of 1998 we had our first girl together: Soleil Channing Marie. All of my kids have 2 middle names and all the names are for a reason dear to me. Soleil is french for sun (and my name really is Sunshine) Channing is the last name of my favorite actress in Grease (Stockard Channing) Marie is my sisters’ middle name. As she was growing up I realized she was kind of growing into a little me. In most ways I think that is wonderful and in every way I am proud of her! I noticed that she was painfully  shy at times as am I.

In the last couple of years she decided that she would go into nursing as well. Of course I think it is a perfect fit but at the same time I worry for her because I know how caring she is and how stressful the job is/can be. Especially losing a patient or resident. I am thankful that she has tagged along to work several times and started out in the dietary department ahead of her CNA program at school. Now she has been a CNA for a few months and will be starting her pre reqs at RCC this fall. I keep thinking I have plenty of time before she grows up when in reality she turned 18 this past March. It goes by so fast….
