Mommy, Am I a Woman Now? A little girl thinks she becomes a woman by being brave, winning awards and wearing red lipstick. She continually asks, "Mommy, am I a woman now?" and the reply she gets throughout life is, "Oh honey, not yet, but you are a big girl!" Finally, the day comes when her mother tearfully replies, "yes" to her repetitious question. It is a touching story about a mother realizing her little girl has grown up and how difficult it is to admit that she has in fact become a woman.
