Maddie is Seven
When Brody was a toddler, I remember thinking that the age 7 was scary. That's when they would truly be a big kid.
Now our fourth baby is 7! I really can't believe it.
Maddie has matured and grown so much over the last few months. She's been doing amazing in school, reading really well, and being very...ah, vocal with her opinions.
Last night she requested to wear a special outfit for her birthday. I asked what she wanted to wear. She said "I need tights with holes in them, shorts, and high heels."
No, you are not dressing like a hooker, Maddison. And where on EARTH did you get the idea to dress that way?? I assume its from one of those tween Disney shows on Netflix... or at least I hope so.
The other day she spilled milk all over herself at school, so the receptionist called and asked me to bring clothes. When I got there, she told me that she tried to convince Maddie to just wear the school loaner clothes instead of calling me, but Maddie said "These clothes aren't cute. If you call my mom she'll bring me cute clothes." Ah, classic Mads.
Maddie is still headstrong, fiercely independent, sweet, cuddly, and gives absolutely no shits about what people think of her. I'm so proud of my girl!
Happy Birthday sweet Maddie!
