Here Come the Tween Years


The tween years are often defined as somewhere between 8 and 12, in which girls are “too old for toys, but too young for boys.” BE will be 8 later this month, and although I don’t anticipate her being done with toys anytime soon, I can see early “tween signs.” Not long ago, she wouldn’t watch movies or tv shows with actual people, insisting they were for adults. According to her, kid shows were cartoons only. Lately, though, she’s passed over Arthur, Dora, and Curious George, in favor of Hannah Montana, Judy Moody, and Sharpay’s Fabulous Adventure. I’ll be on the lookout for more “tween signs” and naturally, I’ll be reporting them here on the blog!
