Baby face, don't grow so fast

Tami thinks she is such a big girl now she wants to go to school all alone. We've been discussing this issue in the past weeks. Her argument is that it's safe and the school is literally just around the corner. In fact, it is the building at the end or our rather short street, she just has to turn the corner to go to the main entrance.
Today she was returning to her school for her extra music lessons, and since it is bright daylight, I told her I will escort her across the street and then watch her from afar as she is walking to school. She accepted although she wished I would just let her go completely. She started walking away, and about 20 meters away from me she slowed down, stopped, looked back at me and decided to run all the way back. Did you change your mind and want me to escort you, I asked. Yes, she said and gave me a big hug. I thought I'd be very lonely on the way without you, she added.
