When did you grow up...and why are you calling me MOM?!?!

Yes she is calling me MOM and I don't want to be mom I want to be MOMMY! She sounds so big when she says "Hey mom". It is my fault I have such a hard time remembering to call my mom Gamma instead of mom and look who picked up on it and now is calling me mom. It is so bittersweet because I know she is getting so big, 2 going on 16 and I want her to grow but not so fast I selfishly still want my baby! I know she will always be my baby but wow where has the past 2 years gone? It is true when you have kids you blink and they are grown! OK I know I am exaggerating a little she is not 18 and leaving home but it sure feels like it!
That sweet little face also has a very SASSY attitude and boy has she stepped right into those terrible 2's. Some days I feel like the terrible 2's are a great form of birth control because I don't know if I could live through another one :). She is headstrong and has a mind of her own and knows what she wants when she wants it!!!!!! I have a feeling I was the same way and I am getting it back ten fold!!!! I am sure my parents would agree with that! Oh if that is the case I am not sure I will live through her teenage years!

Ahh.... the dreaded "have one just like you"... My mom tells me that she cant wait until the babies are teenagers so that I can get a taste of my own medicine, LOL!
