We should go over to Miss Lottie's and mess with her.
Dad: It ain't right. Ain't no man ought to eat his woman's food year in and year out and see his children running wild. Ain't nothing wrong about that.
On this part of the story, Lizbeth was still a child. At this time she found messing and annoying people humorous. Especially annoying Miss Lottie. At this time she also hopped over fences with her group of friends. Lizbeth also didn't care about anything as much so she didn't mind being poor.
This part of the story was where Lizabeth was in between being a woman and a child. In this scene she had heard her father cry for the first time because her parents were having problems with money. It was the first time she had ever heard a man cry because she thought that men didn't cry so it mixed her emotions even more. She was confused whether she was still a child or a woman
On this part of the story was when Lizbeth left childhood and became a woman. She had so many mixed emotion from what she heard from her parents that she went to Miss Lottie's garden and destroyed, where she took out her anger. After she released her anger she saw Miss Lottie watching her with a sad and mad expression, Lizbeth became ashamed and realized what she has done. From that point on in her life she was a woman and not a child
