Recently, while reacquainting myself with my little bloggy-blog I came across this post that for some reason only known to God and the Universe, I never published.

I mean, really… Who said she could grow up?!?
I’m a mother of a 10 year-old girl. Do you know what that means? I can justimagine all the mothers of girls out there raisingcollective sighs to the Universe right now. Ya get me? She’s a good girl. A really good girl, in fact. But I am starting to get glimpses into what will most […]
