12th Grader

From Finding Nemo:

Marlin: How do you know if they're ready?
Crush: Well, you never really know, but when they know, you know, y'know?

*With thanks to Steph(anie) at Unsweet Mama, who quoted this apt bit of movie dialogue on her blog yesterday, prompting me to realize my girl is ready.

  2. mark, awww...

    dottie kee bones, how thrilled am i to see you here! i visit you often, actually, but have been a lurker. i shall have to now delurk! thank you for the kind word about my girl.

    Towanda, she is, by that i mean, her heart is lovely. thank you too.

  3. ahhh i love that quote. it's funny how supposed kids movies have some of the the best one-liners, in their own innocent way.

  4. I almost never say or feel this about anything other than babies or animals, but awwwww!!!

  5. She's fabulous! (As is your son!)
    Love you!!!!

  6. Here is my favorite from the great bull rider Ty Murray..."You are never completely ready...sometimes it is just your turn.

  7. And there is the future and there is the beauty and within her and around her is the light.

  8. Candice, kids movies are deep. especially nemo.

    Maggie May, thank you!

    Gabriele, thank you, too!

    Not City Gal, what a fabulous quote. I just made it my Facebook status!

    Ms. Moon, such a lovely sentiment. it touches my heart.

  9. Daughters are usually ready well before mothers are, in my experience.
    Best wishes to her for the year ahead. (and you of course)

  10. She has such soul in her eyes -- such a wise, old soul, I think. Yes, ready.

  11. She is, dear heart. The hard part is, are we ever ready?

    Big hugs, my friend.
