I was married at 20 and had a baby by 21. I had to grow up fast. Luckily there were people who believed in me and there were always jobs when I needed one.
Puppies, like all babies, grow up fast. Before long, Gracie was no longer barking at her reflection, instead offering a blase look that seemed to say, 'I know what that is now. I know it's not another dog.'
A father is always making his baby into a little woman. And when she is a woman he turns her back again.
Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything.
Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.
Up at the crank of dawn.
