My 5 year old teenager...OY!

Where did my sweet little baby girl go? Ok, she is still very very sweet, but lately I find myself in awe of all of the things that she is saying. Maybe I am just finding myself in awe that she is talking at all....which is AMAZING!! She is so sassy, and I don't help things when I chuckle when she says something that is sassy. She is also very particular about exactly how things need to be done.

When we got in the car this morning she said, "Chewing gum please mommy". I said, "You think you NEED chewing gum". "YES!" she replies with exclamation. So, I gave her some gum. Immediately she tells me, "I NEED Hannah Montana". I said, "You NEED Hannah Montana?". She said, "Yeah" (and gave me the UH...HELLO MOM...where have you been), and...because I paused for a moment, she added her own words for me. She said, "OK...FINE...Emma!". Where does she get this stuff? It's just so darned cute though. I can't help but laugh.

Oh, another thing. She had a REALLY rough night of coughing and barking like a small seal that is being harpooned. She was up from 11-3! Yikes, good thing that I didn't have to work today:). So, when she woke up at 6!!! Yes, 6!!! No sleeping in for this little girl! I asked her, "Does your throat hurt today?". She paused, shook her head, and said, "NNNOOOOPPPEEE!". I wish that I could explain it the way that she says it. It is hilarious. Then, I asked if she was tired and she said, "NO WAY JOSE!!". HA!!

She's growing up so fast, and she is just so funny right now! I love listening to her. The other day she was on my cell phone! (just playing... HMMMM??? She probably shouldn't play with that (note to self)). I asked her a question, and she said, "Be quiet mommy! I'm on the phone!". It's so funny to hear things that I have probably said to her...repeated back to me. It makes me think...maybe I should ask in a nicer way??

If she's only 5 and acting like this...will she "be" the same age as me soon??? CRAZY thought:).

*Notice the new music on the blog?? The song "Unwritten" by Natasha Bedingfield has always made me think of Miss Em...she is Unwritten....but the pens in her hand...she will write the rest for HER time:). I also had to add a little Hannah Montana for my mini diva...I actually LOVE this song, and it makes me think of her too...the last is a song I just love that has helped me through some rough times. Enjoy!
