I found my girl out picking dandelions in the backyard, carefree as ever. Oh, she's getting so big! Soon she will be 8 and then I'll only have 10 more years for her to be home with me. Did you know that you are only a parent for a third of your life? Somedays it feels like forever but really, you don't have your little ones with you for long so enjoy them. That's what I'm trying to remember with her even though we butt heads because she's probably too much like me. I sure love her though and am grateful God gave me at least one girl. Girls are so fun and feminine! Most boys just don't have any inclination at all to go out and pick dandelions.
