Officially NOT A Little Girl Anymore



Miss Thing is 9, turning 10 in February - which officially makes her 9 and a HALF. She's always sure to tell you that half mark when you inquire about her age.

This morning, I removed a framed poster from above her bed at her request. Begrudgingly, I removed the masking tape that had securely held the colorful Disney Princess Poster since 11/18/01 (yes, I dated it) and replaced it with a High School Musical 2 Poster.

She is officially no longer my little girl, content to play with Barbies or her dollhouse. I guess I should have seen this coming when earlier in the week she asked me to pick her up BLUE NAIL POLISH at the store while I was there - she wanted her nails painted that color for the First Day of School. Sure, no problem...anything, else??

*sigh*

I remember when daughter asked us not to unpack her Barbies after our move to Alaska...I think I cried the rest of the day (she was 11)

My LLB is 12 and she wants me to paint her room this week... one wall pink and the other 2 a light beige. Then, she found a cool teenager type comforter set... I'm having trouble letting go, too...
