Girls, slow down
October 2nd, 2011 by Regina Brett
My little sister Maureen just emailed me a picture of her daughter, Laura, all lovely in her homecoming dress. When did my niece turn into a woman? How can she be ready to date?
She was all elbows and freckles just yesterday. Now she's stunning and turning heads.
My big sister, Theresa, plans to buy a T-shirt for Laura's dad. She alread got one for my brother, who has three daughters. It reads:
Dads Against Daughters Dating
Then my little grandbaby, who is only two months old, hit a milestone. Little Ainsley rolled over yesterday. Look out world. Before you know it, she'll be off to homecoming, too.
Wish we could slow down the spinning of the world. I want to savor these girls while they're still girls.
