Maddie had her first (and second) latte this week. This might seem a strange rite of passage, but in our coffee obsessed family it was bound to happen sooner rather than later. (I'll have to talk about the level of coffee obsession in this household at some point.)
She's been growing up so quickly lately. A couple weeks ago she got her first handbag and now she doesn't leave the house without it. And in school we are about to start 6th grade coursework -- 6th grade! I can hardly take it. The girl is 8 going on 18 and it's making me a bit proud and a bit melancholy all at the same time.
