My little girl is seven

How has this this happened? My little girl is seven years old. My dad told me “see the child at seven, see the adult.” If this is true then I’ve no worries; Roo is lovely, caring, fun and beautiful — there are a million more superlatives I could use, perhaps one will do: She’s perfect.
