Smooth Like a Baby's Bottom

"My legs feel so smooth. Smooth like a baby's bottom."-Caroline. Today she got permission to shave her legs. I can remember feeling excited about finally getting to shave my legs as kid. I nicked myself at least 5 times and took a few layers of skin off too but even as the water stung my freshly shaved legs I remember feeling older and prettier. I think there are little things that initiate young girls into teenagers and then into womanhood, they make growing up exciting and difficult, especially for girls.

Caroline still enjoys rolling around in the grass, building beaded bracelets, and Justin Bieber. The only difference is she now enjoys all of these things with baby bottom smooth legs.
