Saturday Centus is here again, and Jenny has decided to follow up last week's cropped photo prompt with the complete picture. In the first version, I interpreted the bottom half of the photo as a little girl playing dress-up and had some fun with it. But looking at the complete photo this week brought something else to the surface for me.
Kindergarten is now in her past,
and this graduate’s having a blast.
But those heels mar my bliss.
It seems this little miss
may be trying to grow up too fast!
Some will think my concern overdone.
After all, she’s just having some fun.
But real shoes or pretend,
dressing older’s a trend.
Tots aren’t teens. Are we jumping the gun?
Am I just being old-fashioned here?
In my day, every girl worth her salt tried on Mom's shoes.
But we didn't wear them to graduation.
Nor could we purchase mini versions of our own.
You see, the shoe stores didn't make them in our size.
Only toy stores did...for princesses only, of course.
(And even then, it was just a kitten heel.)
