I have a 12 year old. And I can say with complete certainty that she has very specific likes and dislikes. For one she dislikes the princess quilt she’s had since she was seven and has been begging me to exchange it for one that is more mature.

Of course if I allowed myself to dig deeper I’m sure my procrastination is more about me than about circumstance and the fact that I guess somewhere in the recesses of my mind I thought if I kept that princess cover on her bed- I could still keep her my little girl. For me that cover represented everything I longed to hold onto.. and everything that she was ready to relinquish.
