All Growd Up

Bigun did something disturbing the other day.  At least, I find it disturbing as a parent and it's kind of freaking me out a little bit.

When we got into my car she sat down and said "You know the doctor said after I turn 8 I don't have to use these silly booster seats anymore".

Excuse me?

What happened to the tiny little kid?  When did conversation go from "Daddy, did you know the sky is blue and blue is my favorite color?" to that?  Now her conversations contain actual medical advice from a doctor that she remembered and said at a pertinent and appropriate time?  And it was topical?  There's no way this is normal behavior. 

But then, well, it might be.  Tonight she dropped another bomb.  "The only way to know the future is to wait until it becomes the past".  That's pretty deep.  we were just trying to make her do her homework.

Of course, this is the same kid who, when I walked into the choir loft with the rest of the choir in church last sunday, screams out "Daddy show them your new tattoo" in front of the whole congregation.  at least she's still cute.

The kids with our baby cousin that we got to meet for the first time at the wedding weekend.

Oh man, kids grow up so fast. But whoa - quite the profound statement about the future and the past! Sounds like you've got a smart daughter on your hands (never doubted you would, though). My oldest nephew is 8 and is reading chapter books and it just amazes me. But he still likes to snuggle with me, thank God. :)

I wonder where my "little" boy went every time he drives down the driveway! Ugh, time goes so fast and it's very hard to give up on them being "little". It's so weird to think he's 17 when I haven't aged in years! LOL...
Enjoy those blessings you've been given!
Love the quote of future/past...

Next up, training bras! (I just ruined your day, didn't I?)

To Hugh Jass and CJ -- there are worse things than training bras.

Sorry.
