Maturity

Sometimes the things Girl says to me make me pause and think, "How old are you again?"

Once, during a tea party, she rested her chin on her hand, turned to me and said, "So, tell me about your last date." Yesterday during dinner she was dishing out salad and said, "There, I think that should be sufficient." Tell me, what six year old says sufficient? I'm 23 and I don't even say sufficient!

And last night when I was putting her to bed she reaches up to give me a hug and we have the following conversation:
Girl: Jill, I love you.
Me: I love you too, G.
Girl: Even when I'm mad at you, I still love you.
Me: Me too, G.

I think the above conversation sufficiently highlights her maturity.
