You go to school for 6 hours instead of 2 hours and 40 minutes.
You lose your first tooth.
You cross the monkey bars all by yourself and are undaunted by the resulting palm-blisters.
You play the kissing game at recess.
You practice ballet in real leather ballet slippers.
You don’t like pants with “buckles.”
You get upset and you get over it.
You share with your brothers.
You’re proud of your choices.
You’re innocent and lovely and amazing.
You’re my fantabulous daughter, Leah Lou.
