Laina asked me if I go back in the past and change one thing, what would it be?
And I was all, “I don’t know…what would it be for you?”
And she was all, “Well if I were you I know what I would choose! To not have my Dad die!”
And I was all, “True…but if my Dad didn’t die you wouldn’t have your Papa B. Our lives might be different. We might not have each other.”
And her face kind of looked like she wasn’t sure that was a trade she wanted to make and I was all, “You see how it’s not that easy?”
She nodded her head yes and I said, “What would you go back and change for your own life?”
And without hesitation she said, “Growing up!” like DUH.
She said eight would be the perfect age to stay forever.
But then she said the same thing when she was eight about being seven.
This is a little girl who appreciates how sweet it is to be a kid.
