Top 10 signs she's really growing up *edited*

10. Quite honestly,

9. does it matter

8. that there really

7. aren't 10 signs?

6. Because actually?

5. There was

4. only one ...

3. a BIG one.

2. It was this:

1. Mom, I HAVE to go to school tomorrow. No matter what I say, no matter how sick I am, no matter how much I whine, do NOT let me convince you to let me stay home.

Ah, the joys of watching the baby birds fly from the nest with a sense of personal responsibility.

*edited to add: She had a math test and a mandatory cheer practice. No boys involved!!*

Oh, no, there's a BOY.

Janet said...

ROFLMAO @ Mr. Lady's comment.

Your daughter has such lovely hair, btw. Just sayin' :-)

Melissa said...

Yeah, I'm in agreement with Mr. Lady. There's something like that going on...but maybe not. Here's hoping...

Karen said...

I love that she admits fully to trying to weasel her way out of going.

LceeL said...

Now THAT is a lovely, young lady.

Karen said...

Maybe there was a big test she needed to be sure to take. Or a boy.

Janet said...

What an interesting approach. I'm also intrigued by the necklace. Is that REALLY the pull tab from a soda can?

Nap Warden said...

Just gorgeous:)

Kaytabug said...

Awww! No matter what you say I say boy. ;) As for the soda tab, freak out once it's no longer around her neck!!

Kaytabug said...

I meant to say this too, but I've said it a ton of times! She is stunning!!!

Oh oh. That is wonderful. I would've played hooky!

Also, how weird is it that we share an anniversary & our hubby's bdays are four days apart, while ours are about 10 days apart? Odd, eh?

Suzanne said...

You mean you're not an ogre mom, and can be swayed into letting a child ditch school? ;)

Burfica said...

why is she wearing a pop top around her neck???

Jaina said...

Haha, wow. I'm impressed. Seriously. I have to kind of agree with Mr. Lady though...at least slightly.

Connie said...

My first thought was BOY too! But that is because I know how i was at that age. I would have given up every boy to be a cheerleader.

Marmarbug said...

LOL! Maybe it is secretly a boy! I know that used to be my ONLY reasoning for going to school.
MAYBE she met an Edward.

Huckdoll said...

Awww, she's such a beauty.
