Big Girl, Big Dance

My big girl had her school Christmas Dance this week. The preparation for this used to consist of curling her hair and letting her put on a tiny bit of my lip gloss. Not this year.

This year I had to, cut her hair, apply her fake tan, blow dry her hair, straighten it and help her de-fuzz. I know, I know she's only 13 but after seeing the photos of her friends, I reckon I got off lightly. Some of them had been for full head hair extensions, spray tans and acrylic nails. That shocks me. I'm obviously one of the stricter mums, but hey I thought me big (wee) girl (baby) looked lovely if not a little old and tall for me not to shed a tear.


  1. OMG--It hurts so much to see them grow up overnight like that! I kept trying to squish my "baby" down, but it didn't work and now she's 27!

    Your girl looks grown-up but not in a bad way. Too many young girls seem to think that "grown-up" means "tarty looking", which makes one wonder what grown-ups they've been observing. You've obviously raised yours to have respect for herself. Good job!

  2. Thank you so much honey. I know what you mean. having a little one around just makes her feel that much older and more grown up in my eyes. They're always your baby really though!!! :o) xx
