Sophie wants to grow up

What evidence do I have of this? After all, she still wears elastic waisted jeans. She still comes in our bed in the morning for a snuggle. She still has me brush her hair in the morning. And she still wants to hang out with me on weekends.

But then I found THIS in our basket among her loot from the dollar bins at Target.

"Do you know what this is???"

Yes, it's a lint roller.

"We don't care about lint. Why do you need one of these? Do you think this is a good use of your allowance money?"

Well . . . . Grandma and Grandpa always have them at their house. So I thought it would be very grown up to have a lint roller.

"No! Put that back right now! You are nine years old!! You are not old enough to have a lint roller!!!"

Thank goodness she is still little enough to have said "Ok, Mama."

I second the comment from Purple Flowers - at least you aren't having to deal with a desire for make up!

It could have been a lot worse! Maybe you can give her one for her 10th birthday!
