Autograph Series - Water Lily

It made me smile to read this funny entry in my autograph book by a classmate called Eileen:

"When you are married and you have twins,
Don't come to me for safety pins."

If I remember correctly, Eileen was an Indian girl who learned Indian classical dancing and whenever there was a school concert, she would be performing. I wonder if she knew what the two lines meant. They looked like they were admonishments from an aunt to her niece about the birds and the bees. The innocence of childhood but of course we grow wiser as we get older and we learn how to read in between the lines.
