Emma (yelling from the bathroom after school one day): There’s this boy in my class that likes me….and I like him back.
Me: What’s his name?
Later I find on a piece of paper where one of Emma’s friends has written about them liking each other. I think Lexi mentions that Emma has a boyfriend.
Me: Is Drew your boyfriend?
Emma: Maybe it’s true. Would you let me?
Me: I think you’re a little young for a boyfriend (Like TWENTY YEARS too young!)
Emma and I are in the van on the way to pick Lexi up from school.
Emma: The TRUTH! Is the tooth fairy real?
Me: *sigh* No, she’s not.
Emma: So you just take my tooth and put money there don’t you?
Me: Yep, Mommy and Daddy just pretend we are the tooth fairy.
Emma: I’m going to wake up and see you guys next time I lose a tooth!
This seems to be just smidgen of all the little ways she’s growing up! Make it stop!
