This post is dedicated to my daughter, Girly-girl, who got married last week, ninja-style. She and her husband didn't tell a soul about their new marital status for several days, and when she told me, I was speechless. My Girly-girl - a married woman. Let me share one of my favorite memories from her childhood:
Girly-girl and I were at home in our small apartment. I was washing dishes and had taken my hearing aids out, placing them on my nightstand. She needed to tell me something very important, and brought my hearing aids to me. After I put them in, she looked at me with her beautiful, sweet eyes, and said, "Mommy, when I grow up, I want hearing aids, too, just like you."
Melted my heart.
Now that she's married, she needs a new pseudonym. Girly-girl doesn't sound right anymore. Any suggestions?
