You Just Never Know
She amazes me. Just when I think I have her all figured out, she does something totally unexpected.
This daughter who dislikes talking about the physical body, dreads studying health, and avoids pain at any cost, pulled out her own loose tooth yesterday....calmly.
I was checking to see if she was done with her school work when I found her sitting in the bathroom, rinsing off a bloody tooth. She looked up at me with a big smile and told me very nonchalantly how she pulled it out.
I like this independent spirit, this taking care of herself. But I'm also happy that, when she wakes up this morning, she'll still check under her pillow to see if the tooth fairy paid her a visit.
