So, I don't know what is going on with our oldest, now that she is in 4th grade she is one big bag heap of emotions and stubborness (much more than usual). If I ask her to do something, she asks why, over and over again or just looks and rolls her eyes.
Cry? Oh my...it seems no matter what I say to her, she bursts into tears. Play your guitar (bawling), eat your dinner (bawling), watch tv (bawling)...it is pretty emotional. More with me, if her Papa says anything, she bursts out laughing to the point of tears...we can't figure it out.
So, here we are at dinner this evening and she gets up and asks if she can make herself and her siblings some chocolate milk. I told her yes and she brings everything to the table and prepares siblings milk first and then makes hers and is muttering about something. I asked her what was wrong?
She looks as me and states, 'I hate Hershey's Chocolate .' I then ask why she asked for chocolate milk. 'I didn't want Hershey' chocolate, I wanted Ovaltine!' Okay says me, then why didn't you ask for Ovaltine? Out come the tears as she says, 'because you said it was for breakfast!' By now she is boo hooing.
In steps my hubs thinking he is being discreet and quiet and he tells me, 'you had better watch this one, I think she may be starting her period soon as that is definitely some PMS symptoms.' The crying stops as if the sun just came out, she looks at him with this incredulous look on her face as she states, 'I know what a period is!' Then she bursts into laughter.
Diva girl on the other hand, is laughing with her (I am sooooooooooooo not ready for this!) and proudly announces, I know what a period is too, it goes on the end of the sentence!' Needless to say hubs and I burst into laughter and here she was thinking she got it right!
Both girls then sat there laughing until tears streamed down their faces.
When dinner was over the oldest let her Papa know that periods come with puberty and her friends are now wearing cups (bras) to school!
What will they say next?
