Growing pains



With the 3 older kids gone all day, I feel like I mostly facebook/blog about Ivan and Mason. They are the ones that I hang out with the most. But the other kids are alive and well. (:

I was laughing at my sister's Halloween post, as she described her son's "costume" as a "moody pre-teen". But it's not so fun when you are the one dealing with it!

Harmony has always been a *tad* dramatic. Enter puberty and you better watch out!

She is constantly mad/grumpy with everyone in our house. Her teachers are all mean and picking on her. She has no friends. She is not good in school...etc. etc. Life isn't fair right now. (All of this is according to her)

Every night between 7-7:30 she tells us " I am tired I am going to bed." Growth spurt maybe?

Lots of changes including BO, and buying her first...well I promised not to tell about that, and yesterday she woke up with a zit on her forehead.

She was washing her face and I told her that unfortunatley, that was just a part of growing up. She said, " I am just not ready to grow up."

I am not ready for her to grow up either...

Oh poor Harmony! And poor Mom! But her pictures are adorable!

Oh gosh, it must be so much harder for a girl! Heaven help us both.

Yeah it has been quite the experience. I honestly could have throttled her today. She got in big trouble today at school and of course it is not her fault. The drama level at our house has increased by a lot!

Girls become pre-teens so much earlier now a days!

I just love your new family pictures, they are great. I especially like the ones that Ben is actually smiling in. He has such a nice smile. I can't believe that Harmony is already to the preteen stage where does the time go.

I am not ready for that stage. Luckily I have a few years but I know it will come way too soon. Good luck with all of it. I loved t pictures. Fun just to put some on of her and the mom and dad.
