Growing Up

Apparently, the thought of growing up can be painful, even to a three-year old.  Saturday morning, we read the story of Peter Pan to the kids.  I didn't think anything of it.  Then yesterday afternoon, out of the blue, my Little Miss began to ponder the growing up problem.

Momma, whenna Iuh gow up?
Oh, baby, you won't grow up for a long, long time.
But when?
Oh, not until you're 18 and that's a long, long time away.
But I might, momma! I might gow up soonuh.
No, sweetheart, you won't.
Then she began to cry, But I might, momma, I might!

Poor thing.  I have no idea why growing up is such a scary thought to my three-year old, but I thought it was just adorable.

I also thought these shorts from maurices were adorable... in a totally different way.

maurices is currently having their Final Clearance sale that they have about twice a year. I always look forward to this sale and go a little bit crazy in there.  Hence, the shorts and shirt... And dress and blazer and denim shirt that I'm sure you'll be seeing a lot of in the next few weeks. 

Here are just a few more photos for your viewing pleasure. ;)

My niece is 5 and just cries 'cause her Dad tells her she can't get married right now :) I don't know why she has such ideas in her head!

Love the neon with your patterned shorts! I wonder if our Maurices is having blowout sales!!

Oh boy, why did you tell me Maurice has their final clearance. Now I feel the sudden need to get there ASAP before everything gets snatched up. I love the top and shorts together. CUTE!

BTW - growing up is kinda scary. ;) Too adorable from your sweet one.

Funny - my kids are always itching to grow up as fast as possible. I'm always trying to slow them down!
