Daddy's Not So Little Girl.....
I know that my little girl isn’t going to stay a little girl forever (she’s far from that now) but damn, I’m not ready for this, man. Lil mama is built like….man she ain’t built like no 10 year old that I went to school with! There’s something in the milk!
Let me start by saying that I’m just not dealing with all of this too well. Case in point, I walk into her room the other day to wake her up for school and I pull back the cover and her Chi Chi is staring me in the face. MAN, I DON’T WANT TO SEE HER BREASTISIES!!!!! Daddies aren’t supposed to see those types of things. What’s crazy is, I wake her up mad like she did something! I looking at her telling her to put that damn *ish up and she’s looking at me like “what did I do”. Hell, she’s still half asleep. Man, I just wasn’t ready for that. I need her to sleep with a bra on or something, man……
Hmmm, another instance…….We were at softball practice and I was watching the girls run laps and it hit me like a “I’m Rick James B**ch* slap that my lil mama needs some new sports bras. I’m watching all these little petite little girls run around and I see my lil mama with breasts and cakes shaking everywhere! I wanted to snatch her up, run to the car wrap her in some plastic wrap like a spring roll! Don’t get me wrong, she isn’t a 10 year old wearing a double D or anything like that but her little nubs aren’t the usual nubs and I’m not feeling it. I want to get her an extra small spots bra but that might mess up some circulation or something. As she would say, “Daddy, that’s child abuse”.
I’m always telling her, “that’s too damn tight”, “that's too damn small”, “girl, I’ll bust you in the back of the head if you don’t take that off”…you know, stuff like that. Part of it is that she is a kid and doesn’t know any better. She wants to be a kid and doesn’t totally understand that she can’t wear the things the other kids wear. The other issue is her silly a** mama giving her the clothes that she can’t wear anymore. She thinks it’s alright to give lil mama her old Dereon jeans and halter tops. What the Hell!
Anyway, now I have to stay on her about wearing her robe and putting on a damn bra! I DON’T WANT TO SEE THAT *ISH!
It’s weird sometimes seeing all of this because at the core of her, she’s still just a little girl. My little girl! I look at her sometimes like, damn, this is some bull, but we’ll sit up and watch Sponge Bob together. I’m tripping about the Chi Chi’s and cake action but she still likes to act like a baby and get whatever she can out of me. We have to go down the woman isle at the store to get ‘stuff’ but we’ll bake cookies and watch “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs”. Man, it’s crazy.
We still have a whole lot of work to do. I can’t teach her how to be a woman and I try not to fuss too much about what not to do as a woman. We’re still working on the whole “time of the month” thing and I’m trying not to stab her in the top of the head. I guess it’s a lot for a 10 year old to deal with but that doesn’t mean I want to! I will say that I have had help with it all, even the whole Chi Chi thing. I don’t know the first thing about bras (except taking them off but I’ve never been good at that either….sorry, I had a moment) Click this link to read about our bra fitting experience at JC Penny. I’ll say this, I had no idea breasts grew by the hour. Only at JC Penny…….
Maybe I need to calm down. Maybe I just need to accept the fact that my little girl is growing up. Maybe I need to lock her in her room, chain her to the bed, and bring her out when all of the other little girls catch up. Or, maybe I need to eat a pudding pop. Isn’t that what Cliff would do?
BTW…..I’ve been told that boys are cute. WHAT THE HELL???? Coming soon…..
