sleep overs, spa nights and 10 years old...

pink is having a sleep over tonight - and i agreed to be her 'spa servant' as her friend called me...

facials, pedicures, manicures... and tomorrow flat ironing hair and make up... sigh.

i'm trying to busy myself until stewart little 2 is over and i can go to bed!

i'm not ready for 10.

i had a boy, A REAL BOY knock on my door this afternoon and ask if pink was home and could come out to play! he was a real boy - not a playmate of my son (2 years younger) a REAL BOY. ..

i hadn't heard anything about him until about 20 minutes before he knocked on the door. pink was playing outside and he and one of her girlfriends came by and they played in the yard for a bit before she came in. i guess he came back because he enjoyed himself. A REAL BOY...

i can navigate the next part (i think) but this setting guidelines and being intentional RIGHT FROM THE START is just too much too fast. 10 is really 10 in our lives - we have raised our kids to be the ages they really are, not 10 going on 15. i know that pink will respect herself and us in whatever guidelines we determine together, but OH I WASN'T READY FOR THIS TODAY!!

it's like one of those 'life comes at you fast' commercials - wow... 10 years ago i never dreamed i'd be here. what a ride!

I have an 11 yr old girl and it is interesting how times are beginning to change. She is not 'interested' in boys but boys are definitely interested in her... I also have a 13 yr old son... scarier than my daughter and boys calling, is how many girls are basically STALKING my son! We get calls all the time... im's... visits... and he is not really interested yet. I pray that my daughter has more self respect than the 13 year old girls I have witnessed recently!

nice blog and I will try to visit your new one too! cheers!
