Random Musings of a Human Becoming

Tuesday, July 3, 2007


I've just packed Sis off to her Year Six social, looking far more like a dignified young lady than an 11-year-old has any right to look. I can't believe how grown up she's getting - it seems just the other day that she was a baby in my arms, and now look at her - another year and a half and she'll be at high school! Then again, when she was a baby *I* was still in high school, so I can't really complain.

9yo-brother has his school's theatre arts performance tonight, and Mum had to go to that, because James has to be here dance with Sis at the end of the social. So I've been pseudo-Mum all evening, getting Sis into her dress, doing her hair, and putting in her very first dangly earrings (today is the first day that the piercing studs came out - she only had them done ~6 weeks ago). I wish I could have captured the look on her face when she saw the first dangly earring in her ear. She couldn't believe how grown up she was getting either lol.

We’ve taken dozens of photos for Mum, and hopefully she’ll get home only a little while after Sis does so she can see her all kitted out. I may just have to post one here, if only to show everyone how much Sis looks like Hermione from “Harry Potter”. Impossible hair, intelligent eyes, impish grin . . . she’s a delight :-D
