It’s the difference between IronMan and Star Wars,
between Sponge Bob and Power Rangers,
It’s going from dressing at Mommy’s direction to emerging in the morning fully and properly clothed on your own.
It’s branching out from your family to focus on friendships,
Progressing from “helping out” to having an allowance ($2) and chores (making the bed, feeding the dogs),
Moving past needing the companionship of a parent to fall asleep at night to being content to devour a big pile of books until your eyes frift closed.
It’s transitioning from running to “Mommy!” at the end of the school day to running from Mommy so you can chase your friends until “Come on K, it’s time to go home!”
You went from a mouth full of teeth to missing your entire front grill, top and bottom, like a befreckled jack-o-lantern,
From reading picture books to reading Harry Potter (and a little mythology somewhere in the middle).
