She may want eggs benedict???

About 9:00p.m. on Saturday night...I think my mom and I just wanted to collapse on the kitchen floor. It was a full-day of birthday celebrations and surprises.

Since my girls were little, I have always bought them special "birthday" shirts. This year, I found the cutest birthday shirt with a sweet cupcake on the front. I was so excited to give it to my {birthday} girl in the morning.

She opened it up and kinda of gave that 1/2 smile. I could tell within 3 minutes that she was not exactly excited about it. As I was getting ready, she came in and told me she didn't want to wear that shirt...it was "babyish". She had already picked out a dress that she wanted to wear for her tea party. I gradually "surrended" and folded that cupcake shirt away.

Minutes before she went for her birthday breakfast with Mr. Sandy Toes, I was doing her hair. I began to put a bow in it. She slowly touched my hand and said "Mom, I don't want a bow in my hair...I just want to wear it down.".

Those were {fighting} words...not a bow???? My little girl has worn a bow in her hair since the day she was born!

My husband was downstairs waiting to take her out to breakfast. I told him to watch out b/c she will probaly NOT want the smiley chocolate chip pancakes and may insist on eggs benedict instead with a cup of coffee~

Oh my word that shirt looks ADORABLE!! Yep, she is definitely growing up. I think that was the age Lexi rebelled and stopped wearing bows too. I finally, this past summer, got rid of her bows...sniff...sniff. She will still wear ribbons and cute things on her ponytails (thank goodness!!)....oh, and occasionally baretts (sp??). It is a sad day for moms when they don't want to wear those cute things anymore.

I bet she STILL will eat those pancakes though...lol.♥

I've been there, when my daughter stated that hearts and butterflies are childish.
Little girls grow ;)

Well, if it makes you feel better my mom never was successful in her many, many attempts to do my hair at all -let alone brush it. I also began refusing to let her dress me from the moment I learned how to undress myself. Which was quite early considering she had to duct tape my diapers on.

Yes, I looked like a homeless child until I was about 12, but I just refused to have it any other way.

Your daughter has red hair too. Be glad it's only starting now and not 5 years ago!

It is hard when they start growing up and not loving all the cute things we love for them. My daughter is now 16 and those days are long gone.

Happy birthday to your little one. She is a cutie.

I love to watch my little girl grow up. But outgrowing things is what truly get's to me. I know they must get bigger but for me it is so hard to let go of some of the things of their past.

Ohhhhhhh, I'm going to cry (no exaggeration) the day my little girl tells me no bows. :( She's six and still going strong with the bows, but I know that will stop in the next few years. Makes me so sad!!

And, btw, I love that birthday girl shirt.

she is growing up... so sad but true. i am not looking forward to that. I love the shirt, one day she will too when she doesn't care about being cool!

LuLu said...

I know this situation all to well! I'll pass you the tissue box and we can share the "mom pains" of growning up over a latte! We'd feel so much better i'm sure.
BTW love the shirt and would have bought it too and been told the same thing... maybe we should buy them in our size and where them instead :)
xo,

Did she come around? Oh. My. She is precious! I hope she had the most wonderful Birthday : )

Oh, I think the shirt is cute! Maybe she'll change her mind! :) Isn't it sad when they outgrow things? I know this is terrible, but sometimes I think fondly of when I used to be able to dress them in what I think looks cute, when they were still very small! But I am glad at least that what they want to wear isn't too tight, too short, or too see-through...yet! Or maybe, if I'm lucky, that won't be a battle!(That's my hope, anyway!) I sure hope your daughter had a wonderful birthday! I bet she still went for the pancakes! :)
