You know your kids are getting older when . . .

You know your kids are getting older when from the other room you can hear them playing with Lego's and you overhear this conversation.

Boo (turns 12 on Sunday):  Can I have the yellow flat piece?

Licious (age 9):  No.

Boo:  Why?

Licious:  I need it.

Boo:  Have I told you about my Lego girl?  My Lego girl really likes yellow.  She has wanted yellow Lego tiles for a long time.  May she have it please?

Licious:  Oh yea?  Well my Lego girl's sister just got the money to buy the yellow tiles and they are really special to her.  Plus, my Lego girl has had a really hard life and was even homeless for awhile.  I think she deserves to keep the yellow tiles.

Boo:  Well, mine is awesomer.


Good one Boo.  That whole awesomer bit was wicked.

I also know that my girls are getting older because they start school on Monday.  Boo will be in 7th grade.  ::Gulp::  Licious in 4th.  ::Double gulp::

Next year I'll only have Omri at home with me. Gulp is right. It all happens too quickly. By the way, that thought hasn't caused baby fever yet, lol :)

I knew Licious was starting 4th because my son is too. But Boo in 7th grade....that doesn't seem possible. Where has the time gone?
