She looks so big.

Where have my babies gone?!?!

This picture was taken after I told Kaelin it was time to come inside for lunch. Her response? "No."
Once again .. "Kaelin James .. inside now."
Response .. "I'm a Princess!" (said very emphatically and a sassy little head twirl.)
Then she went back to what she was doing.

I've created a monster.

It certainly didn't help matters that I just couldn't discipline her for that one. I was too busy trying to keep from falling on the ground laughing.
Later that day we had a loooong talk about how yes, she is a Princess ... but Mommy is a Queen!
She didn't seem too enthralled with that conversation though. Surely her brain filtered most of that out.

We're sooo in trouble by the time the hormones kick in. I feel for her future boyfriends too. None of us stand a chance.

Kaelin demanded I get the camera out today to take pictures of her climbing a tree. I finally give in, sit down on the ground .. and this is what she gives me ...

The girl cracks me up. Apparently she's been sneaking in a few Vogue magazines between Maurice Sendak and Dr. Seuss.


Kites are fun...

Until they're not...

then Kaelin stomps off, pouts and does her dramatic fake cry.

Pity her.
Life is hard.
