How am I going to deal with the teen years when I can't deal with the drama of a ten year old? Today, after an hour of curling her hair (school pictures were today!), it looked horrible. With five minutes to go before the school bus arrived, I brushed it out and tried to repair the mess. Ugh, the tears, the yelling, the talking back. It's my "Welcome to 5th Grade" party--although I never asked to be invited.
Look how sweet and beautiful she was:
And still is today...
Oh man, give me strength to deal with this strong-willed, talented and beautiful girl!
