my beautiful sissy and her flower girls
Dina - my baby is graduating from elementary school and will soon enter the hell that is known as middle school. I'm worried, nervous, anxious, and scared shitless. I'm not ready for my kid to pull away from me and be more concerned about what her peers think than what *I* think. my kid is already horrified by some of the physical changes her body is going through. we all know that middle school is when our innocent kids start playing truth or dare (god help me) and being the smartest kid in class is no longer cool.
Ayla - she is the feisty, mischievous boy we never had and never wanted (kidding!!). she keeps us on our toes. she screams because her voice must get heard amongst the strong personalities in the house. she insists on doing everything herself. she's miss independent. she will be starting Montessori school in the fall.
