Isabella at almost six is growing like a weed.

I kind of hate that phrase, actually, because weeds are the bane of my existence right now. We took Weed Man up on their offer when they knocked on our door and said, “Ma’am, would you like us to help you find your lawn?” because, yes! I did want them to help me find my lawn underneath all of those crappy, crappy weeds.

So, Isabella is growing like, well, something else that grows really quickly. (Peter Gallagher’s eyebrows? Anthony Weiner’s boner?)

What this basically means, though, is that this kid has more clothing than I do. Emily’s hand-me-downs go straight from her closet right onto Isabella’s body. I swear, nothing in this world makes a little sister happier than wearing her cool big sister’s clothing. She wears these shirts and skirts and shorts and hoodies and dresses with such pride. “Lookatme, Mama! Don’t I look just like EMILY?!?!?!?”

She was super excited this week to wear one of her new t-shirts to school. She showed it off to everyone.

“Do you love my new Beatles t-shirt?” She asked my friend Riva at carpool. “I can even read what it says! It says Tonight Only!”

Well, she was half right.


It does, indeed, say Tonight Only.

Only those are THE JONAS BROTHERS and not THE BEATLES.

Um…honest mistake?

  1. oh gosh, well at her age I assume they are one in the same. Man that makes me feel OLD

  2. I could surrender my Bachelor-watching habits if I had your kids around always to keep me this entertained. Maybe they should all have blogs of their own, too! So, you know, I don’t grow bored in the interim waiting for your daily post…and since it’s all about me, clearly.

  3. I have no words, only fear that someone will call the authorities on you for letting your child get so confused about music. That’s GOT to be classified as neglecting one’s duties as a parent or something.

  4. On a long drive with my husband, I brought a tonne of CD’s and was making him guess what I had just put on. He did pretty well, until he guessed Cheryl Crow for what was actually Hanson (Don’t judge me). “Well, he sounds like a girl!” I will never let him forget it.

    Besides, compared to Isabella, the Jonas boys are OLD! They may as well be the Beatles!

  6. That’s too cute. Though the Beatles are far cooler, so that tells me your little one is well-educated.

  7. She’s so adorable we’ll forgive the mistake. But I’m going to need to see a picture of *her* wearing it.

    And your Peter Gallagher/Weiner line made me giggle.

  8. [...] I love you very much, even when you chew carrots in my ear and make me play LIFE and make me play Free To Be You And Me on repeat and grow so quickly that I can’t keep you clothed and you confuse the Beatles with the Jonas Brothers. [...]
