Emily started talking about going to see Cinderella during March break (first week of March).
As March 13th arrived, my daughter had decided that we were no longer going to watch the movie.
I certainly don’t know and Emily didn’t give me any concrete reason why.
I blame this on her being a teenage girl. She just changes her mind because she can change her mind…
Early last week, I got a Facebook message from the mom of one of Emily’s baseball teammate.
Would Emily want to go see Cinderella with the girls?
My poor girl is so not used to being invited to outings that she never knows how to react. Yes…. No…. I don’t know!
So I said “yes of course, she would love too” and I took the conversation off line with her. Explaining how cool that would be.
By the time Saturday afternoon arrived, Emily was excited and off we went.
5 girls and their mom (and one dad… Emily’s dad of course).
The movie was great!
And for the second time ever, I wasn’t sitting next to my girl at the movie. I didn’t see her reactions, I was sitting behind her and had to wait till after the movie to see if she liked it.
She loved it!
She loved the Frozen short movie.
And on the way home she said… “Mom, you know…. Oh…. The alien? It’s Sheldon!!!!”
That preview was before the movie and she kept that information top of mind to tell us on our way home.
That’s my girl!!!
Slowly growing into a more independent young lady!

it was a great time 🙂
It sure was!
Another step toward being independent. I love it.
It’s probably scarier for me than for her. I love it too.
I know! She’s slowly growing up.
I just can’t help but think about all she is doing – and how doctors all over need to be trained differently (Like telling parents their kids will “never do XYZ) – she is doing every thing they said she wouldn’t!! She’s not only doing it, she is knocking it out of the park!
Thank you. She’s an awesome girl!!!
