This morning was the morning that I realised that my little girl isn’t really a little girl anymore!
She’s nine now and I know I’m probably a little biased but she seems so much more grown up than a lot of her friends at school, even so, I was surprised when she asked me this morning if we could take all of her Princess posters down from her bedroom walls as she was too old for them now.
I wasn’t too surprised when she showed me what she wanted to put up in place of the Princess posters because she’s getting more into music and celebrities lately but I think her Dad might have a shock when he comes home from work to find all the Pink Princessy posters replaced by JLS, One Direction and a rather hot looking Justin Bieber (Is is wrong that I think that? ;-)).
As if that wasn’t traumatic enough for me, she then announced that she also thought it was about time that she got rid of most of her teddies and dolls! She decided to put them all in the garage and bagged them all up into a couple of black sacks but somewhere between starting this and putting the last teddy in, she decided that actually, she might like to keep them. So she got them all back out again and we’ve compromised by tucking them all in around the top of her bed frame so she can still see them when she goes to sleep.
I don’t think I can cope with much more of this growing up lark – tell me it gets easier!
