So, my kid is a ten-ager.

 Mia turned 10 on Wednesday. It was epic. And by epic I mean it was pretty chill and low-key. I tried my best to make this into a big deal but she wanted nothing to do with it.
 These two are identical. 
All she asked for was Captain Crunch for breakfast. Against my better judgement, I succumbed. She also got this little heart ring from me. Because a ten year old girl needs a ring.
 Cookie cake from Eileen's and home-made oreo mint ice cream.
 Apparently, Bode couldn't wait until he got his bowl. 
 There is something about watching a person open presents that's captivating. 
 Mia had a couple of friends spend the night which means that I got to chaperone a slumber party. I do not leave slumber partied unattended for one single minute. I even slept with them. We all know even the sweetest kids turn evil after dark at a slumber party.  
We played a nail painting game. Whatever you landed on, I would paint a nail that color. If they landed on the remover then one came off. The person to get all ten nails painted first won.
 These two have shared twenty birthdays together. 
 Mia insisted on everyone making their own snack mix and she insisted there be ten different items. She also insisted it be perfect.
 Ten bowls of crap all in a row:
 On Saturday Mia got to build her own birthday. She got to choose everything we did as a family and everything we ate. She chose the science museum, catfish for dinner, Dolphin Tale 2 at the movie theater, and Cheesecake factory for dessert.

If you want to spend less than 5 hours at the science museum, do not go with Mia. It's actually kind of freaky how she never gets tired of learning things.
Best ten years of my life. Also, most exhausting ten years of my life. But still, the best.

Happy birthday to Mia! Sounds like she is growing up to be a pretty cool kid.

I can't believe she is 10....and I bet she and Cooper would get along just fine at the science museum....
