No more Tiaras?


We had a busy weekend (again.)  I am so looking forward to Spring Break on the beach, just being able to stretch out and breathe deeply.

The Girl Scout pinewood derby was Saturday.  My troop had one trophy this year, one of the girls got 2nd place for speed!  (Not as many as last year but it was still lots of fun!)  Emily had to rush from dance to the derby, and then off to the Father-Daughter dance and movie with dad.  (My iPhone is acting up again and won't upload my pics, if I can get them off I'll post!)
 
Yesterday I attempted to clean her room while she was at sewing club.  ARGH.  After many bags of garbage and a trunk full of things to give away you can see the floor!  (Yes, it was that bad.)  I'm going to work on it again today and maybe I'll be able to paint it before Spring Break.  She wants a crazy lime green color that I'm not too game on, but hey, I grew up in houses where we couldn't paint the walls.

It's so hard to believe she's a teenager now.  I asked her if we could get rid of her dress-up clothes and she said "yes."  :(  We took them to the neighbor's sweet little girl, so it made us both feel better knowing they would be used.  But still, no more tutus in my house... (except real ones, of course.)

It's exciting and bittersweet to see your kids grow up. Now that she's a teenager, the REAL fun is about to begin! :)

Time has flown by so fast. I can't believe Emily is 13 already. Molly and I painted her room so many times when she was a teen that I swore if we ever had a tornado her room would be the safest place in the house with all the coats of paint on it!

I have a stepson, and while we still have a few years before we have to deal with teen stuff, I really cannot wait to see what happens! I think it will be made worse because his birth mom is sending him to an affluent private school where I think he will learn to ask for a lot that none of us can provide (or want to provide, you know what I mean?).
