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."
Excuse me while I cry a little now.
