They're milking this six thing for all it's worth.


This morning Michal said, "Maybe, when I'm like six-and-a-half, can you get me a dog because Kenna's allergic to cats?" (And yes, she really used the word "like." The scary part about that is that it probably means she's heard me use the word "like." Oh the linguistic perils of growing up in the 80s.)

And yesterday, on our way to Target, Michal asked, "Now that I'm six, am I old enough to go see a Hannah Montana concert?"

And a few days ago Kenna asked, "Mom, is six past the little ages? To which Michal responded, "Mom, now are we just normal kids?"

The picture below was taken the moment I told them we were going to the new cupcake bakery that just opened in town after school today. Michal hoisted her doll in the air in what can only be described as a cupcake victory salute.


The bakery was absolutely divine. I'm not sure that's a good thing since eating a cupcake feels like you're not really having a big dessert. At least that's what I told myself as I wolfed down my chocolate one and sat there thinking about how much I really wanted to try the cola one. Who knew they made cola cupcakes?

I'm actually still thinking about it now.




  1. Martina started saying "like" regularly before she turned 5. Ah, the joys of sending your kids to preschool, where there are a plethora of children with older siblings...

    And she told me the other day that she only wants to wear jeans from now on because they make her look older.


  2. The cola one does sound devine! I'm sure you'll be back to try it out!

    I first heard the word 'like' when we moved to Canada. I must admit, I do despise that word. And when someone says it a lot, I truly can't concentrate on the conversation we're having, because all I can do is count the many times they say 'like'. I thought it was a teenage thing! :)

    Love the fact your girls are considering themselves 'normal' now. I got a big laugh out of that.


  3. Oh yum...I LOVE cupcake shoppes. A new one just opened here too (as if we needed aother,,,there are already 3 or 4). Kate and I have been watching them build it and cannot wait to try it.

    I cannot believe the girl are 6!!!!

    We have a drive-thru embellished-to-order cupcake shop right around the corner from my girls' school. It is really hard to drive down the road while eating a gooey cupcake - even harder to leave it sitting in the passenger seat calling out your name!
