If I have said it once….I have said it over and over….
But then again…Will I EVER be? Probably not.
Shashamane is 9…right at THAT age.
You know…the age when she hangs on my every word and is my BFF.
I am starting to get the occasional, “Mooooooommmmmmmmmmm!” when I do something that she might deem EMBARASSING.
Sooo…we are on the VERGE.
I am walking thru unknown territory here….so apprehensive about all this GROWING UP BULL.
So it DID NOT SURPRISE ME when she said, “Mom…I need a new sports bra. Mine is too small. Honour got one with adjustable straps.”
“Oh no…here we go.” was my EXACT THOUGHT I think. lol
I told her we would go soon and moved on…because that is how I roll, kinda like an ostrich. All head in the sand, this is not happening. THAT is my style…
Then she went to the store with her DAD and I got a call from her:
“Um…Hi Mom. There is one here and it clips in the front Mom. It ISN’T a BRA Mom. It just clips in the front. “
“SHasha…is it a BRA????”
“It clips in the front Mom. Not like yours that clip in the back.”
“Shasha..some BRAS clip in the front. Just because it doesn't clip in the back doesn’t mean it isn’t a BRA.”"
“Oh……….” she said.
“Give the phone to your Dad.”
She hands him the phone……..
“Jay…Is that a BRA????”
And of course….He has NO IDEA.
So I calmly say, “Jason…That is a BRA. YOU are not buying her her first bra. Put them BOTH back and come home. Ill take her soon.”
He said ok and we hung up.
I couldn’t help but laugh……….
THIS IS MY LIFE NOW.
And what a CRAZY, FAST-PACED, BEAUTIFUL life it is.
And then today- she got her adjustable strap “SPORTS BRA”…which is really a PRE-training BRA.
Remember…If you are looking for me – I’ll be the one with her head in the sand.
