Table Talk

As the school year draws to a close for our older girls, we had some funny conversation over dinner last night.  I am saving this photo for any time in the future I may be tempted to allow them to have sugar or caffeine:

Maddie and Whit-Moes

Notice Whitney under the table laughing hysterically and Maddie choking on her chip. 

Some of the things we discussed:

  • 4th and 5th grade girls can beat boys at tug-o-war
  • 4th and 5th grade girls can run faster than boys
  • There is a sad realization that these are their last years at being able to be faster and stronger than their boy peers.
  • 4th and 5th grade girls fight a lot.

Some things Rob and I have learned from raising these two tweens:

  • They are more fun now than ever
  • They are clever, funny, smart, and think they are smarter than us most days (and most days I wonder…)
  • Parenting tweens is harder than potty training, teething, and toddler tantrums put together
  • Parenting tweens (especially our own) is the most fun thing we’ve ever done.

I love my crazy girls.  They keep me on my toes, even when my toes hurt.  For that, I’m grateful.

    Love it!! It is such a fun age. Young enough to still be silly and old enough to have conversations. Great post, Michelle!
