The Beauty of Mother Nature
Obchoei, my little devil child, is turning into a girl.
Actually, into quite a beautiful girl.
She is still very small for her age, but looking at her now it is hard to connect her to the gap-toothed, shaved-headed seven-year old who once beat on me mercilessly.
This girl still has all the energy, the same throaty laugh, and quick wit of the little monster, but she’s less manic and a big help.
I can now see the day when she will be a full blown teenager – and I am terrified by the prospect.
She will eat boys for breakfast, teachers for lunch and parents for dinner.
We will all love her and miss her and be relieved and thankful when she goes to university.
