i'm not quite sure she was listening to me

Elle is growing up so much faster than I'd like.

Me: Hey! What's going on? You've been doing that growing thing again, haven't you?

Her: (Giggles)

Me: Don't you remember that conversation where you agreed to be my baby forever?

Her: Mommy, I am not a baby because I am a girl.

Me: Exactly. You are veering from the plan, kiddo.

Her (with exaggerated patience): Mommy. I cannot be little because I am growing and I am bigger and bigger.

Me: Well. Okay, then. But you still can't date till you're married--

Her: I'm hungry.

Me:--or thirty-five, whichever comes later--

Her: I want my soccer-game candy. The sticky candy. It's red. Can I have my soccer-game candy?

Me:--just so we're clear.

Hehehe, too cute. Great photos as always. :D

She has a one track mind...she and Evey would be fast friends, I think. :D

Good luck keeping her little - my two seem like run away trains when it comes to that.

Thanks for the kind words...but i can't hold a candle to you in the cute picture department...

Remember, anything good about my blog was originally stolen from you...and I mean that as the highest compliment!!

I need her to have a talk with my Emma, who has decided that growing up is just horrid and she wants to be a baby again. ~sigh~

Isn't it terrible that they get big and don't even ask permission... sigh... my kids have all done the same thing. They are SO defiant...
