How Did My Kids Get So Old?

It’s just not possible that I am the mother of a 6-year-old and an almost-3-year-old. I mean, I am almost 39…but still! Just. Not. Possible. I remember finding out I was pregnant with Sophia—it seems like that was yesterday. But those 6 years have flown by. Here’s some proof that my girls are BIG GIRLS already:

Sophia’s favorite singers are Katy Perry, Ke$ha, James on American Idol, and Justin Bieber (who she says is her boyfriend).

Speaking of boyfriends, Lily told us last night about a fellow in her class named Adam. She said he’s cute, she likes him, and he is her boyfriend. (Let me tell you, this did not go over well with Daddy, who—until last night—was the only boyfriend she ever had.)

Sophia chooses her outfits based on themes like “rock & roll” or “fashion.” After all, she is the daughter of a fashion editor so I guess I am to blame for this. Or to thank for it, depending on how you look at things.

Lily is fully potty-trained. She even sleeps in underwear. (So, after 6 years of one kid or the other being in diapers or pull-ups, I am thrilled to not be making monthly deposits at the bank of Pampers!) Go Lily!

Sophia is totally over cartoons and prefers to watch shows like Shake It Up, The Suite Life, and The Wizards of Waverly Place. Plus, she always wants to buy magazines with pictures of Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift, and of course, the Biebs.

Lily’s favorite song is by Cee-Lo Green and though we only have the “Forget You” version downloaded, she somehow managed to pick up the lyrics to the “F You” version on the radio. (Good job, bad mommy!)

This year in kindergarten, Sophia learned how to count coins, add and read, plus she has an extensive knowledge of matter, simple machines, endangered animals, types of clouds, and how plants grow. Go ahead and ask her. She’ll tell you ALL about it!

Their favorite games to play are “fashion show” and “dance party”…and for that, I could not be more proud.

There you have it: proof that my little babies are all grown up. Thank goodness they’ll always be my little babies.
