She's not a little girl any longer.
My oldest has passed the threshold from little girl to young lady. She's not grown up yet by any means, but she's no longer that innocent little child. We've talked about her body and how it's changing. I think I am going to have to take her shopping for bras. She takes her own medicine. She makes breakfast and lunch for the whole family. She's begun bathing daily with no prompting from me. She's got curves where a year ago she was a stick. We've had discussions about boys, dating, sex, responsibility, working, budgeting, jobs. It's going to go by so fast, isn't it? I am not too scared. I am even a little excited. But I have no idea what I am doing!
