On reaching the age of ten
This brings up a lot of conflicting emotions for me. For instance, if my health holds out, I could be a great-great-grandmother in another ten years!
I remember when I turned ten back in 1950. Like Kristie, I was the oldest, but I didn't feel much like a kid anymore. I spent a lot of time in the house helping my mother while my younger siblings played outdoors. Kristie--to her mother's credit--is enjoying her childhood.
Kristie and her little sisters have been spending a week with me every summer for some years. She is a darling child and a lot of fun. I'm so glad I got to be her grandmother.
