Welcome to 4th Grade - I Now Have A Middle Schooler

4th Grade - Middle School

How are y'all surviving the beginning of school?  We are starting week 3 of middle school.  Guys, can I just tell you, I can't believe my daughter is in 4th grade!!  Yesterday I was admiring all her class pictures I have on our wall and got teary-eyed because my baby girl is growing up so fast.

BUT, I will say that since school started this kid as been testing my patience.  Lord help me, I don't know how many times I've said Lord, tag you're it!  A new grade, new school year and a brand new attitude to go with it.  Since the first week of school, it's been non-stop arguing every time I pick her up from school.  My kid will argue and debate every.single.thing no matter what.   Yesterday she was grounded for the first time ever!  Even as a little one I've only put her in time out once when she was 3 - that's it! 

I can only imagine my mom up in Heaven smirking as if saying now you know what I went through.  What I did realize is that I need to take a step back and breathe because last week it hit me - my aha moment!  This kid is just like her Mami!  She's me. SHIT!  While she's a sweet, lovable, funny, always making me laugh because she's so goofy with a great sense of humor and a love for life, she's also strong-willed, independent, sassy, doesn't take no for an answer and doesn't like to be told what to do kinda kid. Which is the case for many kids this age but again - SHIT! 

With that said, I will say this, my daughter makes me proud every single day.  She's also the most loving, empathetic, smart, funny, full of life beautiful 4th grader ever.  She makes me so proud every day.  She amazes me every day and she inspires me.  Being a single mom isn't easy and every day I work hard to let her know that no matter what, you can accomplish anything you want. 

How are you all doing with the back to school schedules?  Have y'all adjusted yet?  I hope all your kids have a positive, amazing school year!!
