“Gardens are not made by singing ‘Oh, how beautiful!’ and sitting in the shade.”
― Rudyard Kipling,

Growing up is hard work.

Peter Pan didn’t want to do  it and either does Imogen. She really is not happy with how things are changing. Yes, she would like more freedom, a later bedtime and to never wear braids again but at the same time she wants to remain a child. She is not boy crazy and is often annoyed by the girls in her class that are. She would rather be friends with the boys.  All of these hormones are cramping her style. She often expresses her frustration with not being able to change these things. I feel for her and try to listen with compassion. I know she will emerge from all this but I also know that her growing pains will continue … heck, they never really stop do they?

    I remember my stepdaughter at 10 years old… depending on the situation it was either “but I’m TEN years old!” or, “but I’m only 10…”
    Love those sweet in-between years.
