I am not ready for my little know it all to grow up.
She is ready for a training bra, and puberty.
I am not ready for the hormone changes, and all that comes with it.
She is ready for tween crushes, boy bands and Justice fashion.
I still think Gymboree is a great clothing store. And NO boyfriends allowed!
She is ready for more independance.
I am holding on to my little girl, wishing she would not be in such a hurry to grow up.
She is ready for I-Carly, Victorious, and Big Time Rush.
I am wondering whatever happened to SpongeBob and Scooby Doo?
She has decorated her bedroom walls with posters of her choosing.
I miss all the "princess" decor, and little girly touches.
She wants to wear heels.
I refuse to buy them...for now.
She wants to wear makeup!!!
I compromised on lip gloss and lip balm.
She makes her own jewelry, and wears accessories.
I still can't believe that my baby - who never let me put a bow in her hair - is now the complete opposite.
She is starting to spread her wings.
I am still clipping her feathers, hoping she does not fly too soon.
She is ready.
I am not sure I ever will be.
Life with Kerri is saying goodbye to our little girl, and welcoming a pre-teen into our home.
