Life has a way of sneaking up on me.
Days turn into months.
Months turn into years.
And before I know it....they are little people with minds and ideas of their own.
When I used to hear a Mom talking about her TWEEN daughter- and their TWEEN-NESS.
Tween-ness being: independence
I would think to myself, "Ahhhhhhhh. I am glad I'm not THERE yet. I'll cross that bridge when I come to it."
Well people...I am standing on the edge of THAT very bridge I thought was SOOOOOOOOOOOO far away.
I am looking at THAT BRIDGE and thinking that ....
Simple. Easy. Not yet.
I am afraid it is INEVITABLE.
THAT time has come.
The Lord thinks I am ready.
But...as usual....I have my doubts.
Shashamane has been saving her money and had some money from Grandma and Grandpa for christmas...so today- she bought and MP3 player.
Which made me excited thinking of all the ways we will bond over GIRL MUSIC.
I was going to SHARE my favorites with her:
I was excited....She is growing up and I thought it was a better decision than a TOY(which she wouldn't play with in 2 weeks).
like I said....I had BIG PLANS for us.
We were going to be taking this journey together....thru MY music.
Then we got home.
I said..."Maybe we will put some Gwen Stefani on there."
She said, "I dont want to."
I blocked that out....nevermind.
We were going to BOND.
Then she brought me a list...of people she wanted on her MP3 player.
THIS was the list:
Big Time Rush
Pink(later found out this was JAYS pick.LOL)
Then I proceeded to say..."come on...lets go find some music we BOTH like."
And we headed to the computer to click on good ol' you tube.
I tried EVERYTHING.
And one after another....she turned up her nose.
She shook her head.
She said NO...1 by 1.
She denied me.
Then I said, "Wait a second, It seems like everything I like...you DON'T"
And then she took that FIRST STEP.
She walked ONTO THAT BRIDGE.
She looked me in the eye and said, "Pretty much...Yes."
Oh Lord..........Here we go!!!!
