She laid in my arms 11 1/2 years ago. So sweet, so pure...so silent. And so her childhood has come to a sweet close and she has entered into her new phase as a young lady. Tonight we celebrated being girls and all the perks that go with it. I did mani-pedis for my girls while we chomped down on pizza while watching our chick flick. The boys were away watching boxing on ice a.k.a. hockey. After beautifying ourselves we relaxed while having a special party of our own and then it was discovered...our party had changed from just hanging together to celebrating the newest woman in our family. Yup! My youngest has officially begun her period. Am I THAT old? Oh please!!! I hope not. I am not worried though. I LOVE having girls this age. They are so much fun and the world in their eyes is most definitely fun to see. I am grateful for our special celebration, though hubby may need to bring in Ghiradelli by the truck full!!!
