D and I had “the talk” last night and it could not have gone better! H and S had gone to practice so it was just D and I having our girl time. We had such a great time. We laughed at silly stuff. I kept her company during her shower, scrubbed her hair because she asked if I would and rubbed some cream on her dry skin. She asked about her developing breasts and that is where the conversation started about reproduction. It all unfolded so naturally. She was full of questions. I answered them all as gently and honestly as I could. I love her so. It feels like we have stepped through a door. It is a bittersweet step. But as parents – it is what we do – we give them wings and let them fly. Fly my amazing girl, fly!
Yay for mommy 🙂
