Whoa, Momma!

How did my 6-year-old turn into a teen?



My 6-year-old daughter gave me a sudden fast forward the other morning.

She's always been in that under 10-percent category in the weight range. Shorts don't fit unless they have elastic waists. And bathing suits droop when they get wet. I'm sure it has something to do with her eating only a couple bites at dinner. I've never really thought much about her weight, just grateful she doesn't have issues with being overweight.

But then the other day she asked me if her butt looked big. Big?!? I can't even see one! I mean, come on, kid, you are not Kim Kardashian. Mom_kimbutt

And then I wondered how I suddenly had a teenager in the house. How does this thinking start so young?
