We were all in the car and she started to talk and that's when I wondered....Who are you? Where is my little girl? She could not stop talking about everything they got to do at camp, who she became friends with, all the "critters" that were found in her cabin, the swimming and THEN...."Mom, I have a boyfriend." WHAT????!!! Ummm, how could that be? She proceeded to tell me about the boy she danced with at the Friday night dance, and how someone told her she should "break up" with him and her response was, "I can do whatever I want." That was after she chewed me out for not telling her to pack something nice to wear to the dance. I didn't know about a dance, but she did fine with her blue jeans and cowboy boots. Then after we got past that initial shocker she said, "mom can I get my ears pierced today." Oh hold on I thought, let me catch my breath.....And so, after dinner that night we made a trip to Claire's.
Then to top it off, we went shoe shopping and she bought her first pair of women's shoes. I suppose it is going to happen, but I'm not sure I'm ready for her to grow up just yet.
