Sure of herself
Precious little girl growing up too fast
I remember her as a small child, playing dress-up. Princess one minute, rock star the next. Dorothy in sparkly red shoes.
Singing, dancing to the music of her soul.
Fascinated by life. Captivated and captivating.
She once snuggled and slept on my chest just as her baby sister now sleeps. She still likes to snuggle, just don't tell her friends.
Her world is still black and white. There is no gray area. A behaviour is good or bad. A person is good or bad. She will accept you and love you, or cut ties and never look back.
Our first baby girl, the sole light of our lives for so long.
When did you grow so tall?
When did you get so worldly?
Yesterday you were collapsed in sleep in satin princess jammies, looking at a car magazine. Today you are reading Twilight and discussing the hotness of Taylor Lautner with your new BFF.
I want a pause button. I want a rewind button.
But most of all, I want you to continue to grow into this amazing young lady I see emerging.
