Growing Up Way Too Quickly

Sometime last week I remember RJ told me that she will grow her hair out again and will have it rebonded. Lol! She then also asked me to work on her toe nails and put little flowers as designs. Yesterday, I saw her browsing the net for fashionable womens boots. This morning, she was asking for some cloth because she wants to sew some little dresses. RJ is fashionable in her own way but her passion for fashion started when she saw Cecilia Cassini’s website, an eleven-year old fashion designer who started designing at the age of six. Am I sensing not just a future model but also a future fashion designer here?

RJ is just eight years old but she already has her own wants and styles. She has opinion on what color will perfectly match this and that and picks out her own clothes and foot wears. I am glad that she has this innate ability to know what’s hip and cool when it comes to fashion but I also miss the days that I can dress her the way I want. Why do children are growing up way too quickly?

Yes, so much for the denials. RJ will be barely on her tween next year and whether we want it or not, she will grow unstoppable. So instead of manipulating her, it would be better if we will just give her free reign to choose what she wants to wear and support her on whatever she wants to do, but of course with our guidance. We just hope and pray that she continues the values that we instilled in her and that she may grow up a fine young lady.
