II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

The Best of Both Worlds!

If you have a daughter, you probably recognize that as the title song for Hannah Montana. Brooklyn has been waiting for WEEKS for this big live concert that was going to air on TV on Saturday, July 26th. She has asked me almost daily "how many more days, mom?" We were counting the hours down on Saturday and had our 3D glasses all ready and waiting. Then my neice, Chantel, came into town and we got completely distracted. At 7:49, we decided to all (me, Chantel, Brooklyn, my mom and my aunt) go and get our toenails done at this place that closed at 8. I called and the guy said he'd wait on us so we RUSHED out the door. At about 8:49, it hit me!! We were missing the show!!! AGHHHHH!!! Thankfully, I called Matt and had him start recording it so we got the 2nd half of the show. When I "broke the news" to Brooklyn that we had missed the first hour, she said, "That's okay. I'm over it. I'm kinda past Hannah Montana now."
First of all, that cracked me up. But secondly, how can my 7 year old be "past" Hannah Montana? She should just now be to the age that she's starting to like that stuff. What's next? Adult shows? She is growing up WAY too fast. I guess I'm partly to blame...but really, I want to keep her "little" for as long as possible.
When we got home that night, she did manage to 'make herself' endure watching the 2nd half of the show though! ha ha

I was watching that same concert w/ my nieces . . . . who also claim they are "over her." I just laugh. Little do they know what "joys" await them when they get older.

My niece pulled one like that on me a couple weeks ago. I asked her if she liked Little Einsteins (my son's current favorite). She said, "When I was like 2. I am FOUR now." (Excuuuuuuse me!)

I wrote a post about this time-slipping away problem on my "me" blog (whenthewallfalls.blogspot.com)

But I'm really writing because I want your sense of humor and hilarious comments on my Men Worth Marrying blog. Pretty please?!?!
