notsofast...

little girl in a
grown-up dress.
little girl, you
don't see yourself.
little girl with your
hair un-done.
momma cries 'cause
she sees you,
sees the way
you want to be.
and she sees what
you don't want,
momma's little girl.

Jean - I left a link to the Wednesday Haiku on my blog today (I'm home with a cold, not too bad, but bad enough where I can't fly).

I've missed something...I can tell.
Pictures of Sparky?
Broken necks?
Dang! So little time to get to all these places and find out the facts!
(just the facts, mam)

COOL DOG!
Kind'a looks like ol' Gus, the fella that got my Beanie knocked up and gave us Dasher who turns seventeen this December.

Jean said...

she - thanks for the kudos, dear.
Glad to see you. Hope your long recovery goes smoothly.

Berry - I knew you'd take a shine to Sparky. He is a sweetie.

Do all women go through that, in their youth. Or is it just the precocious few? Being male, I had no such thing in my youth. But I ponder these things. And, since you mentioned it...

Jean said...

Doom - all women? No. My sisters and I were naive for a long time.
But, that was another generation. Environment and upbringing have changed a lot, sadly.
Not that there were no precocious youth in our generation, but I would say a smaller percentage than now.

My son spends a lot of time looking in the mirror, not at his clothes or hair, but to see if his ab exercises are working. Boys and girls are sooooo different.

Jean said...

S. P. - I had a boyfriend, for about a year and a half, who had five sons. Different is one word for them. But, I'm more than sure your son would not be at all like them.
