    We are letting her choose where she wants to eat. But, it will probably be Pizza Hut because she loves pizza. We thought about the Huddle House but she'll want pizza. Plus, she'll be able to play games there.

    Of all things, she wants a red rose cake. We were planning on Frozen or Tinkerbell but she declined and insisted the cake with the red roses is what she wanted. That's when it sank in that she is actually growing up because the princess phase is slowly fading away. :(

    I know. It's not fair. I asked her if I could shrink her and keep her little but she refused. She is a preteen and behaves like one, too. She is getting more into clothes, styling her hair, painting her nails, playing with her play make-up, etc instead of dolls, dress up, and princess movies . It took us an entire hour to get out of the house, just to go for a walk because she insisted she needed to look "pretty." I told her, we're just going for a walk, not entering a pageant. I told my hubby she needs her own bathroom and he said, "No, because then she'd never leave."
    It sank in last week that she is growing up when she wanted a red rose cake instead of a princess cake. She even declined Tinkerbell and Frozen, which shocked us.

    It worries me that she is so concerned with her looks though.

      She has so many people that spoil her. I just need more space to put all the stuff she gets. Lol

        We are taking her to Pizza Hut later because I doubt she'll want Huddle House. Lol
        And then we're having cake and letting her open presents.
        Her grandmother had her yesterday so we get her the day after.
