My not so little, little sister is officially heading to middle school come September. Needless to say, I am not ready for this. She is my little Monkey and her growing up was not really in my plans. She is supposed to stay cute and little forever. But much to my dismay she is growing up.
It sucks. But in a way it is pretty neat. She is so smart, and clever, but at the same time still naive. A few weeks ago we were talking about what she had just learned in health class (In grade 5 they learn about the anatomy of both males and females.). Since we are the older sisters, it is our job to make sure she is comfortable and that she understand that it is okay to talk about all this stuff. Somehow we got to talking about male anatomy and she was curious about ‘tentacles’… I probably laughed for 10 minutes because she had no clue that she had the wrong word. It’s moments like these that I don’t want to correct her, but at the same time it is important for her to know that they are testicles and not ‘tentacles’. haha.
Goodness I love her. Anyway back to the point of this post, here are some pictures of her little graduation!
