Say what?!!

Yes, that is what I heard when I asked Chloe to choose out her outfit for her first day of school yesterday. She chose out a plain ole pink T Shirt and jean shorts.

Oh my baby, stay young! Stay young forever, I beg you – pretty pretty please!

Are you sure you don’t want to wear one of your dresses? Something with ruffles? Bows in your hair? Perhaps those character shirts aren’t so bad after all…anything but wanting to look older…please!

I love you sweetheart.  It made my heart happy that she still asked for pigtails. 

First grade, here we come.

    I know what you mean! When my daughter turned 16, I just stared at her. I thought maybe if I stared hard enough she would turn back into a 6 year old. It didn’t work. I hope your daughter has a tremendous school year and that she stays young at heart for longer than she stays young.
