I Am Soooo Not Ready for This

I knew subconsciously that after Katie's bedtime confession last evening that I was in a state of denial. This morning reality hit me hard over the head. There was no denying it any longer - Katie was using her halter top as a bra substitue. She insisted on wearing it under her clothes to school this morning.

After school she brought her friend Stephanie home to play. Katie took off her shirt that she was wearing to school (at least I really hope that she kept her other clothes on at school) and the two of them are colouring together in a My Little Pets oversize pad. I can't be the only one to see the irony here. The halter top was definately a fashion statement as it was windy, pouring rain and blinking cold today.

I am really having a lot of trouble with this whole bra thing. She is seven, for pity sake!

But I can see Katie trying to wear this same halter top every day. She is stubborn if nothing else (and I can think of a whole lot "else"). So I went and got her some "small undershirts."

This is the smallest and least suggestive I could find. She is still going to swim in them.

God help me when this kid gets hormones.

She will keep life interesting, that's for sure. I'm glad it's your daughter. I'm too old and tired to parent a teenager again. I can just sit back and watch the "fun".

Since mine have kids of there own, it will be fun watching Katie grow up.

Oh!! the joys are on the way
