We are confused.

We are officially stuck in-between little girl and tween.  I catch myself telling Bee, "You're not a baby anymore," when she is getting herself in trouble, or slacking on her chores, only to later refer to her as "my baby girl" during her bedtime routine.

Being a mama is so hard.  I know it's not cool to say that publicly, as it has a negative connotation, but I don't mind admitting it.  I feel less than ideal at least 50% of the time, actually.  Balance is not happening around here, although as long as I'm working towards some level of it, I believe I must be okay.

We saved room for snow cones today.  I have a pretty strong will when it comes to eating right, and that means Bee is right there with me in my eating-right-boat, but since our summer fun times are limited with her broken wrist, we've been enjoying more cold treats than usual.  Have you ever had a coconut cream pie snow cone?  Heaven!!
It may appear that I littered there, but I assure you, I don't litter.  This is Texas, you know.
