After we read our stories in bed we were laying together in the dark and Naiya asked, “Mommy, why do little girls grow up?”
I had one of those long pauses that I often have wondering if I should give her an honest answer. It didn’t take long to realize that I didn’t have any answer at all really. So I did what I often in these situations. I asked her “Why do you think little girls grow up?”
She quietly sat with an equally long pause.
Finally she said, “So they can reach stuff.”
