Is she 3 years old or 13?

Just had to share the laugh of the day...Well, I am sort of laughing...I am not sure I should be laughing, but now it seems funny to me...What does this mean? How old is this kid anyway? Somedays, I just don't know. And let me just say, I have NO IDEA where the following comment came from. She has never heard anything like this said in our home. Man, they grow up WAY too fast!!!

Anyway....

I was downstairs with Gracie in her playroom CLEANING...cleaned all day today because we have company coming...and Gracie did not like that I was moving her things around so I could vacuum.
My response to her fussing: "Honey, I will be finished doing this in just a minute. Sorry, but I have to vacuum."
Her response: "But Mommy, you are wrecking my life."

No joke! She said it. JUST LIKE THAT. Simple but brutal. Some pretty CRAZY things come out of her mouth these days. I had to explain to her that her statement was not very nice to say to Mommy. I was not "wrecking" her life. I was "cleaning" her entire life. There is a big difference.

Later in the morning, I was still cleaning. This time I was dusting. I handed her something that had fallen on the floor that belonged to her, and she says to me,
"Mommy, I appreciate that."

Is it me or is this the sign of things to come?...Moodswings already at three and a half. What will she be like when she is 13?

I am going to ask God to pretty please grant me a child SO like Gracie. You know I always had a very special place in my heart for her, now I am REALLY learning why. She is too funny!

Is IS scary, isn't it?? The other day I was telling Frank about something that happened during the day & Kiara pipes up & says, "Mom, you've got to chill out"
I could NOT believe my ears!!!
Every night I pray, "Oh Lord, help us during the teen years!"
