After you run through the hills screaming and wallowing in self pity knowing that most 5th graders are now taller than you, I suppose you might hide your shoes and your tops. Serena loves to try on my shoes and proclaim that she can fit into them. I guess it makes her feel pretty mighty fitting into her mom's shoes, but she still knows who is boss. I may be petite but I can be fierce. Serena is a sweet girl and very helpful but she's at the age where she's sassed me more than once, and more than once have I had to set her in her place when she's taken a tone with me.
I suppose it's payback. My mom always said "wait till you have kids of your own one day!" I talked back a lot as a teen and l and I had to have the last word. How my mom didn't drop me off at the farthest boarding school--not to return till I was 20 is beyond me! God I must have been insufferable.
At least this little kitten in the window isn't taller than me...or talking!
