Momo and Mama

Momo and I were photographed the other day at our annual Japanese Community Picnic. I can't stop looking at the photo because
1: I actually like the way I look (or at least I am not appalled by it)
2: I can't get over how grown up Momo looks.

Seriously...she seems to have grown up overnight! I love it and it makes me sad, all at the same time.

Last night as I was putting Momo to bed she suddenly started singing Brittany Spears (which is not at all her type of music)...anyhow, she plopped down on her bed, got in her covers then sang out (ala Brittany) "I'm not that innocent" to which I replied "Ughhhh, you better be". It was pretty funny but pretty much captured how I have been feeling lately!

Momo is growing up.
She graduated from 8th grade in May and is really looking forward to Freshman year (which starts next week).

Mango is growing up too...He's going to be a junior this year! Luckily Momo and Mango (and friends) all enjoy hanging out together.

All in all, the kids are cool and so are the dogs...
