A flirtatious future. - Aria MacDonald

A flirtatious future.

The other day Aria was with Anita at a coffee morning with her girlfriends, and one of her friends has two boys, one older and one younger than Aria. Aria decided that these two boys needed kisses. The older boy may be in the ‘oooh yucky girl’ phase because he headed for the hills, the younger one was oblivious to Aria’s advances, so Aria came away disappointed.

The joke in these situations is to say “oh oh, we’re going to be in trouble when she gets older” but sometimes we assume that these sort of things are going to happen when in the cold hard light of day, who knows what exactly lies in store for Aria, 20 years from now when I finally let her start thinking about considering the possibility of becoming interested in boys.

It is exciting seeing Aria learning all these new social skills and growing up (she’s not a baby anymore) but it also reminds us of the what-ifs that are out there in the future.

Anywho, we’re taking things a day at the time and enjoying every moment with Aria, trusting God for the future and looking forward to the next big step for Aria, being a big sister…

    Ahem! Correct me if I’m wrong but I think that you were under 21 when you started looking at boys Anita! Ha ha.

    But seriously, plan a bright future for Aria, then don’t analyse it too much, because, for now, it’s more important to live in the moment and take each day and week as it comes.

    You have a very special girl and life is uncertain at the moment but you have also been gifted a deeper awareness of how fragile life is to all of us, so you are able to hold onto Aria and truly appreciate having her right now.
