What Is A Little Girl
A little girl can be sweeter (and badder) oftener than anyone else in the world. She can jitter around and stomp, and make funny noises that frazzle your nerves, yet just when you open your mouth, she stands there demure with that special look in her eyes.
A girl is innocence
playing in the mud, beauty standing on its head, and Motherhood dragging
a doll by the foot.
God borrows from many creatures to make a little girl. He uses the song of a bird, the squeal of a pig, the stubbornness of a mule, the antics of a monkey,the spryness of a grasshopper, the curiosity of a cat, the speed of a gazelle,the slyness of a fox, the softness of a kitten, and to top it all off, He adds the mysterious mind of a woman.
A little girl likes new shoes, party dresses, small animals, first grade, noise makers, the girl nest door, dolls, make-believe, dancing lessons, ice cream, kitchens, coloring books, make-up, cans of water, going visiting, tea parties and one boy. She doesn't care much for visitors, boys in general,large dogs, hand-me-downs, straight chairs, vegetables, snow suits, or staying in the front yard.
She is loudest when
you are thinking, the prettiest when she has provoked you, the busiest
at bed time, the quietest when you want to show her off and the most flirtatious
when she absolutely must not get the best of you again.
She can muss up
your home, your hair, and your dignity---spend your money, your time,
and your temper---then just when your patience is ready to crack, her
sunshine peeks through and you've lost again. Yes, she is a nerve-wracking
nuisance, just a noisy bundle of mischief
