Kamryn drew a picture of her BFFs today. I asked her if she was sure this was all of her BFFs and she assured me it wasn’t. How silly of me. I asked her why there were no boys in the picture – more just to see what kind of answer she would give me. She told me she didn’t want her wrist to hurt. I found that answer to be ironic in a very inappropriate way which I’ll let you make your own assumptions about.
I love little girls at this age. Every day Kamryn comes home with a little note with hearts, flowers and BFF written all over it from one of her friends. I wish I could bottle that happiness and innocence and force feed it to all of these girls when they are in high school.
What happens to that innocence? When does it all change and disappear completely??
Unfortunately, it disappears so much earlier than it should.
