Find Me On

This is the last weekend of summer before school starts, and let me tell you, this has been the most stressful summer EVER!! Not only did I worry about my husband’s health problems….but my tween daughter is DEVELOPING! Just kill me now.

She has started wearing bras. Yeah. And I started letting her wear “real” makeup (just a little, but jeez), and just this week…after some (a lot) of harassment, I let her purchase her first razor to shave her legs.

“Mom, I look like a hairy wolf!”, “Mom, I feel like a hairy monkey!”, “Mom, all my friends are shaving and they will make fun of me for having hairy legs!”. Yeah, I got all that (and I remember bugging my mom in much the same way when I was her age). I decided to really look at her earlier this week and….I’ll be darned if she wasn’t right…her legs were looking a little hairy “like a wolf”. After she shaved for the first time (after 5 exhausting minutes of me showing her how it’s done), she then told me that she was happy…and that she felt smooth, like a “hairless cat” (seems to me a hairless cat would be kind of stubbly, but I digress).

If that wasn’t stressful enough, I then took her shopping for school clothes and discovered that she is now in WOMEN sized shoes and Junior clothes!!! WHAT?!?! When did this happen? And when she was trying on clothes, I noticed she was getting CURVES. I want the slobbery toothless years back!!!

And lest I forget…BOYS are calling the house! I mean…several of them. “Mom, when can I date?” Um…NEVER! When you’re 30! Well, that’s what I wanted to say anyway. I guess we will be having that talk soon.

Hair being shaved, boobs popping out, make up being worn, boys calling the house, and  oh…there is dad on the couch talking about well placed buckshot….welcome to Middle School and the teen years! I’m not sure I’m ready for this….

LOL!! Well that’s what every mom will encounter…
I have only boys so I think mine won’t be that stressfull for now..
Hope you have a wonderful weekend, and thanks for stopping by..


I have a girl going through the same things (13). It’s fun, scary, and a big red flag that she’s growing up waay too fast.

Still, it’s really nice to see our daughters turning into wonderful young ladies, isn’t it? 🙂

You know, this takes me back to when I was her age! I must have put my father through hell! I guess it’s a girl thing. We are all like that…. and you know what they say about payback….

April … I have an almost six year old (who never lets me forget how old she is getting) and while reading this I looked to her… and honestly I dread the day that I need to get her a training bra.. I just don’t want her to grow up. Oh I know she has to… silly mommy.. I’m all hormonal and she starts Kindergarten in 2 weeks and I am already having moments. Lol! I’m such a sappy mommy!! Grace, peace and blessings, Carla
