Ten years old! I can hardly believe it!
Last Sunday she had about twenty friends here for a party. The theme was punk...!
And on Friday, I took her to see Avril Lavigne with two friends. And darling Daughter, thank you for your cool taste in music... I don't think I could have stood for four hours for someone like Westlife...
As I sat in the car, saying nothing, I listened to them chatting, comparing their cool gear, their nail varnish, their shoes, their voices excited and full of the first inflections of growing up. I was overcome with something I have not yet figured out.
This truly will be an exciting year, full of change and new experiences. I do feel the sadness of something ending, and something new beginning, and I want to hold on just a bit longer.
