As the older 3 kids were getting ready to go to church with their father this morning, Sarah was running around trying to find a pair of shoes to wear. She was digging through my shoes - most of which I never wear because my sneakers are the only ones that have the lift in them for my crooked legs as the result of my hip surgery.
All of a sudden, she came out wearing a pair of my shoes. I started to tell her that no way was she wearing a pair of my shoes, because they would be way too big for her, but she insisted that they fit.
Ignore the ugly toes, but that's my foot on the left, and hers on the right.
When did this happen? When did my kids start getting so...BIG?
Granted, I'm not huge by any stretch of the imagination. Officially, I'm 5'4" (standing on my "normal" leg) and I wear a size 7 shoe. But still - she's only 11! She can't be wearing the same size shoes as I do! That's just wrong. And now she's shaving her legs, and she has a boyfriend (well, as much of a boyfriend as an 11-year old 6th grader can have).
Next thing I know, she'll be asking to borrow the keys to the van.
It happens so stinkin' fast. She'll be 12 next month, and then she'll be a *gasp* teenager next year.
It's just....wrong. They're not supposed to grow up this fast.
