The signs are all around me...the signs of things to come. Oh, I can only imagine what the future holds for us when our 3 girls enter those magical teenage years. But I have been getting a little taste of it.
4 year old now wants input in daily wardrobe options. 7 year old has been
This is what the 4 year old would wear to school if I gave her complete control.
Both oldest and middle argue with me over almost everything, but give my husband very minimal grief. Isn't that par for the course?
They both think they know everything...and that I know nothing. Apparently I never completed 2nd grade math (or taught 3rd, 4th, and 6th grade math) because my 7 year old tells me almost every night that I don't know what I am doing when I try to help with her homework.
And then, I overheard the other night when I hung the Justin Bieber poster in their room after I put it off for 3 weeks because I really didn't want a Justin Bieber poster in their room in the first place...
(Sound of poster rustling..which I would later discover was caused by the 7 year old kissing the poster.)
7 yr old: No, stop!
4 yr old: I want to kiss "Justin Beaver" too.
7 yr old: No, you are going to get slobber on him.
4 yr old: NO I WON'T.
7 yr old: It's my poster!
4 yr old: It's BOTH of our poster... MOMMY, she won't let me kiss "Justin Beaver"!
Do any of you have teenage girls? It's not that bad, right? Right? Or should I just start stockpiling wine and comfort food now to drown my sorrows?
