I have been ever so lucky to come to meet my daughter this week - Miss Estelle Louise Bond-Levitz. However, early in this process I came to learn that the definition of daughter is not just child, it is a FEMALE child.

Female you say...well that's interesting. Growing up I had a brother, a dog, several fish, a couple turtles and a mouse named houdini (so aptly named due to its ability to magically appear on the outside of its cage). What do all these co-habiting creatures have in common - dudeness - in so much as they are all male (honesty point: I didn't ask all the fish, but it makes the preamble much better if I take this poetic license).

So being faced with the impending slings and arrows that raising a little girl into confident kick-ass woman - certain random thoughts come to my mind. These are these random thoughts.
