Oldest G is growing up and I don't really like it.
She's 12 1/2 and sometimes I do not recognize her.
What happened to the little baby that looked at me with awe and wonder? She has turned into a pre-teen adolescent who looks at me with contempt and usually annoyance.
It's a challenging time for us both. I feel like I should have stock in a deodorant company and possibly an acne cream company. Don't get me started on the fact that we are now experiencing the joys of PMS together. (pray for my husband)
She looks so much older than she is. She asks much younger than she looks. She doesn't want to brush her hair. She fights with me about everything.
I remember when she couldn't wait to have pig tails or a pony tail.
I remember when tiny barrettes used to make her smile.
I remember when she thought I was the only person who knew how to braid.
Now she likes to paint her fingernails black. She consistantly forgets to put on deodorant.
She calls me MOM not Mommy (although every now and then she slips)
She looks so much like me some people mistake us for each other.
She's in a perpetually bad mood.
Don't let the smile fool you.
She is faking it.
