Bras and all the rest!

So this past weekend I had to have a little girly chat to Ash.

She has already started to morph into a young lady - and she's only 10 and a half!  I don't remember developing boobs until about 12!  Must be all the hormones in food these days! :) 
I presented her with her very first "bralette" (well that's what Bonds call them) and had a chat about the joys of body changes!
It went pretty well.  She listened intently, screwed up her nose a few times whilst contemplating the upcoming changes her body will go through over the next few years!
At the end of our "chat" I gave her a little Puberty Survival Kit in a cute cosmetic case!
She was so excited.  I could see on her face that she was excited about becoming all grown up!
Me ..... not so much.  I am going to miss her childlike qualities as they slowly disappear over the next few years!
And, let's be honest, I'm not really looking forward to the mood swings and temper tantrums!

Here she is with her fave cousin:

On another note .....
My hubby has embarked on a whole new lifestyle change.
Already he has lost 10kg.
This has really motivated me to also lose some weight before summer.
I have stacked on the weight lately and am really noticing that it's stopping me from doing so many things I used to do so easily!
So, less eating and more exercise is on the agenda for me!
