No, wait. She's 11.

It is so freakin' hard to remember that my little Annie is only 11.

We have conversations about her advanced math class and the boys in gym class and fashion and what-not. She keeps asking to read the books I'm teaching my high school students. She goes to youth group now. She washes dishes, wants to cook dinner (or at least helps), does her own laundry, and feeds the dogs (sometimes without any prompting).

And then...

She spends 5 straight hours watching Hannah Montana.

She reads Junie B. Jones and Mr. Men books.

She runs screaming through the house, yelling, "CHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESE!" while the dogs and her brother chase her for the sheer fun of it.

After all, she's only 11.

She sounds like a fun 11 year old. I have a 10 1/2 year old boy. He is the youngest but sometimes acts like the oldest and then turns around and acts like a baby. I guess it's the age.

That must be a fun age. Not quite a teen and not quite a kid. I'm looking forward to it.

My niece is 11. It's a really fun stage for me that is because I am not her mother. She is half way between a woman and a little girl :)
