A Corner Turned

I knew it was coming sooner or later. But, couldn't it have happened later? I regularly give my daughter, Aja, her evening bath. It's usually a fun filled time: bath toys, story books and puppet shows followed by an actual bath. Well tonight there were toys and me as the puppet master. But, the bath? "Could Mommy do it?", she asks. I was aghast! But, remaining calm I tried to get to the crux of this sudden change of heart. "Do you want your privacy? Would you rather Mommy bathed you?", I asked. "Yes Daddy", she answered. "But, you can still do puppet." Well, it looks like things are beginning to change. Exciting on the one hand, yet, sad on the other.
