i hope they’re okay with that

Sixish years ago, I led a small group of super awesome high school girls.

We had some interesting conversations, ate a lot of grilled cheese sandwiches, and really loved each other.

They were the little girls and we were the big girls.

None of them are in high school anymore.

Some of them have even graduated college.

Two are married.

One has had a baby.

One is pregnant.

They are growing up.

And beautiful.

And I love seeing the women they are becoming.

But it’s weird.

And I like it.

But I don’t.

But mostly I do.

And no matter how much the life stage gap closes.

I think that to me they will always be…the little girls.

    Well, they have to respect their elders, so they’ll have to be okay with that.

    as long as you treat us like big girls, we’ll be “the little girls”…and by big girls, i only mean doing what you’ve been doing the last 4 years or so…
