When my goddaughter was stil in diapers, she would catch ants and give them rides in her toy cars. Now that she's 16 and in bras and kaki's, she's hoping after grasshopers, chasing moths and capturing beetles and bees in pursuit of a career in entomology. In the meantime, she's slipping sidelong glances at the boys then tossing her hair and feigning disinterest. Her mother bought her a knee-length black dress with purple straps and purple fluff underneath to wear to prom. The dress was dutifully donned and paraded through the living room for a paternal inspection. Well, what do you think Dad? He sighs and answers: It's a beautiful dress and I think you should wear it with a long sleeved button-up sweater and pants underneathe. Her mother and I laughed, but not without empathy. She's become so beautiful and yet somehow remained so innocent and it's frigtening to let such a delicate flower go out into the world. A few months later I happened to call the house while her mother waited anxiously for her to reurn home from a walk with the very first boyfriend. It was after dark and mom was just about to go look for them when through the phone I heard the front door crack open and a triumphant shout: Mom! We caught a fish. with our bare hand! Go figure, she'd be slogging through a pond on a first date.

Awwww. They grow so fast, I have 5 god-kids. My first graduated from HS this summer and went off to college and I got to give her the "No means NO" speech against campus date rape. Nice blog, thanks dragonflower :o)
