Houston, We Have a Problem

I was just about to put the kids in bed when they asked if they could play for five minutes before bed. I said sure, what's five minutes any how? So K came out a few minutes later with breasts. I was puzzled??? Me: Uh, whatcha doin honey? Her: I'm playing. Me: what are you playing? Her: princess. Me: oh. Her: ear to ear grin. Me: what's in your jammies? Her: socks. Me: I see that. Her: ear to eat grin. Me: why? Her: I already told you, I'm being a princess, how's my hair look. Me: great, now take out the socks and go get into bed. I am not usually so short. I was just horrified, I had never thought of this day. We've talked about periods and boys and even getting breasts, just never stuffing jammies at the age of seven. After a minute or so the horror wore off and I laughed realizing why she had just done this. She went to her friend’s play of Beauty and the Beast tonight. Duh, it should have clicked sooner. I was just shocked to see her like that. I thought I would handle the teenage years fine and I'm sure I will as long as she doesn't walk into her bedroom a little girl and walk right back out looking like that. I have this feeling that at least one of you is going to say she will. I am not as okay with her growing up as I thought I was. Reality hurts. Above picture is her when she was four. Tomorrow she will learn all about the breastplate of righteousness!

I was so sure he would walk out two seconds later just like her, he wears her dresses, she puts make up on him and he loves high heeled dress up shoes! yikes.

More bad news, I just talked to my girlfriend about this and she said that none of the princesses in the play had breasts. Where did this come from???

Laughter doeth good like a medicene. The Lord knew you needed a good dose to give you strength. So he used the little vessels right there with you 24/7, to surprise you with the unexpected that isn't always on the negative side. Attention getter, yes. As to where it comes from, just the innocence of child play. You are used to Tristen doing the unexpected, so when Kaitlynne did it, it throw you for a loop.

She was already trying to read it. Is there a way to delete right after everyone has read it? Just kidding!
