“OMG, That’s Like So Last Year!”


My kids and I were driving to visit family this weekend when I saw a sign that said “Giant Tag Sale Today”. I love a good tag sale. Whatever you call it… garage sale, yard sale, lawn sale, estate sale (I know, those are slightly creepy), rummage sale, moving sale, or flea market. Tag-SaleOther people’s junk may be my next great treasure! I love browsing at them.

So I asked my kids if they wanted to take a detour and stop at that giant tag sale. Not surprisingly they haven’t yet discovered my love for rummaging, and they both quickly yelled “NO!”

Then my daughter said, and I am quoting…


“Tag sales are like SO last year! Nowadays if you want to sell something, just post it on Facebook”.


She’s eight years old!

“SO last year”?

I had a good laugh. Then I wondered where my little not-yet tween, has learned lingo like “SO last year”? Teen Nick? Victorious? Jessie? Dog With A Blog? (yes, that is actually a show!).

She’s right, by the way. I buy and sell lots of stuff on my local Facebook Tag Sales pages. It’s awesome! You can browse on the comfort of your couch. So, not only is she a sassy 8-year-old, she’s pretty smart too.

Bigger than that funny moment though, is that I realized that she is growing up faster than I thought possible. I know if I blink, she will be heading to her prom tomorrow. But I want her to stay young for longer. I’d still have her in pig-tails and lady-bug dresses, if I could! But I know that’s not realistic. Time flies and there’s nothing I can do to slow it down. Instead I can just try to notice and treasure each moment as they happen. And laugh-out-loud about them.

Oh, and did I mention she just got her first pair of dangly earrings? And she asked me today if she could color her hair PINK with Kool-Aid.

Yep, I’m in trouble!

    That is so funny!!! And don’t let her dye her hair w Kool-Aid! Kate did it the summer before 5th grade w her cousins and it lasted FOREVER!!! Little did I know it is a permanent dye & I wasn’t paying attn to how many times she actually dunked her ends in the boiling hot Kool-Aid…her ends were VERY pink and eventually (a few months later) she agreed to get a haircut to get rid of the hideous pink ends!

    My kids love a good rummage thank goodness although the last junk sale we went to Sally picked up an old shower head and demanded that we buy it! I wish they would stay young forever!
