Five or so years ago, I’d encounter all these little girls in heels in malls. I’d automatically roll my eyes and think, “Hay naku, ang mga magulang nitong batang ‘to pinapayagang maging pokpokita ang anak nila! Landutch!”

Well, I’m now part of the club. Sadako is officially a pokpokita and malandutch. She LOVES getting her mother’s wedges and wearing them, preferably when she’s performing a song — in front of the mirror. We’ve asked her to stop and we’ve even hidden the shoes, but she’d always get her way. She’d end up wearing them, while admiring her tall, womanly self in front of the mirror.

Haaaay, my little girl is growing up so fast.
