Yesterday, while trying to figure if the plant I was about to up root was weed or a black eyed susan, I over heard my younger son say something about being able to ride on the big kid bus next week and that he wouldn't be a little boy anymore.
A milestone. *sad sigh*
This, of course, lead me to think about milestones in general, particularly those a girl has to achieve to be a woman. I don't think when a person turns eighteen they automatically become an adult. That's just an age some bureaucrat chose. Heck, I've met some thirty years old I wouldn't consider an adult.
What are some of the things a girl needs to do in her life, in general, that matures her into a woman?
Some things that came to mind are:
- Losing her virginity
- Having her heart broken
- Sticking her neck out for someone
