The Slice of Life March Challenge is hosted by Two Writing Teachers and part of the Slice of Life Story Challenge that takes place each Tuesday throughout the year and everyday in March. It is a supportive (and awesome!) community of those trying their hand at writing and encouraging others in their writing. Join us!
She's eight. She can't wait to be a teenager. The good news is, after I gave her the opportunity to try out a makeup set someone had given her, we decided that she would only wear eyeshadow and lip gloss to school. Just before we walked out the door I added some glitter to the look. "Mommy, you're the best - ever!" was her reaction. #phew #mommywin
"Mom, is that what you really used to wear?" She asks as she comes into the kitchen to get her breakfast, finding me in jeans and a (pretty hideous) polyester shirt.
"This kind of shirt is older than me - it's even older than Daddy!"
"But the jeans are from now, right?"
"Jeans are over a hundred years old."
"Do you have your clothes picked out for tomorrow?" I ask as we are finishing dinner.
"I do! I'm wearing what would be THE wackiest thing you could wear on a wacky dress up day - I'm dressing normally," says the eight year old.
