Long

There are moments in your child’s life when you realise that they’ve taken another step towards independence.

Her hair is very long, and takes a long time to brush.  I’ve brushed it every day of her life (ahem, mostly), for over 9 years, until the last couple of days.

As with most of her (and his) milestones, I feel mixed emotions. Sad that she needs me a little less, but proud that she needs me a little less.

On the upside, she isn’t going to be plaiting that lot herself for a while, so I’m not completely redundant yet.
