It happened for the first time today. I had successfully persuaded my older daughter to shed her clothes for a bath and was negotiating the younger daughter’s diaper when the youngest said something so sweet I wanted my husband to hear it. I walked to the top of the stairs and called him up. As he approached, I noticed my older daughter, naked, flitting about nervously, looking for someplace to hide herself. She didn’t want her father to see her naked. This is the first time she has felt uncomfortable about nudity in all her few years. She dashed into the bathroom. I smiled at her and, without saying anything, I closed the door as my husband came to the top of the steps. My little girl is growing up.
