The teenager, the oldest of my 3….gosh, it seems like just yesterday she was a small child!!
At 15 yrs old (16 in January) she now towers over me at 5’7!!
Yesterday as I was preparing dinner I grabbed my camera for the 1st time in months and snapped a few pictures of her in the backyard. Of course to her, her hair is a mess and she doesn’t like the way she looks.
To me, I see an absolutely breathtaking gorgeous young lady who I am extremely proud of!
Yesterday for the 1st time since moving into the new house I let her met a few of her friends at The Skinny Dip, a frozen yogurt shop down the street. She was only there an hour but I’ll tell you what, I checked that clocked more than 50 times in that hour to see if it was close to the time she was due back. I’ve met all the kids, but I feel I don’t know them as well as I would like. So, I told her this was her trial run…she passed! She was where she said she was going to be, with whom she said she was going to be with, she didn’t leave, she arrived home on time, and most importantly…she had a good time!
