Ruminations

Tomorrow night for the first time Doodle will go to a birthday party at the home of a friend whose parents I haven't met. I know that this will happen more frequently in the coming years as she earns more independence, but it concerns the inner control freak in me. At least in this case I do know the girl (she's a new girl in the school this year), and the party is only 2.5 hours long. It's hard for me to believe that Doodle will be in the double digits in just three months. Only yesterday she was a 10 months old baby with curly ringlets; soon she will be a 10 year old tween. I need to get started on the photo book that I plan to make of the first 10 years of her life. It's likely to be her second favorite present; top ranking will go to the iPod that she is begging for.

That is a scary thought. I am sure she will be fine but it is one step towards independence, ARRGH. They have to grow up though don't they?
