Growing up

Oh, my little girl. Where has she gone?

This morning the Roo-girl poked her head into my room and said this:

"I can't believe I already had my bat mitzvah."

Why? It was almost four months ago ...

"Well, because I just can't believe it. Because I watched my brothers all do it, and I remember being there for Z-man's ... and I really was up there reading from the Torah."

Yes, you were, my Roo.

"I'm considered a woman in the Jewish community."

Yes, you are, my Roo.

"It's just so amazing that I did that."

Yes, it is, my Roo.

"Because I'm the baby of the family, and it's so weird to see myself do all the things I watched my brothers do."

Yes, I know, my Roo.

"Wow. Just wow."

Yes, wow.

Excuse me while I cry a little now.

Oh I think I'm going to need a tissue. Kids just don't understand how hard it is to watch them grow up.
